”My goal as an educator is to help my students find their own voices and means of creative expression. I think of my students' work as a journey and I encourage them to do the same. Whether a student is three months out of high school or picking up his/her last three credits before graduating, the goals and tools needed for the eventual successful completion of that journey are the same: interest, excitement, confidence, focus, courage, and the realization that the journey—education itself—never really ends. In my classroom, whether live or online, my students are constantly challenged to find the most creative and thoughtful means of expression possible while being held to the highest measure of academic success. I know that I am only one of many instructors that these people will have along the way and I believe that I provide encouragement en route. I see my task as that of helping students to build for themselves a solid platform that will become their jumping-off point for bigger and better things.”
