    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
    The word "enabler" usually has a negative connotation.  I, however, am proud to be an enabler.  When I help students improve their reading skills (vocabulary, comprehension, critical thinking), I enable them to achieve their goals.  When I help students discover a love of reading, I enable them to have a life of enrichment. 
 
     
    CURRENT PROJECTS
