WHY LGCS: I enjoy hearing how different students approach and explain concepts recognizing there is more than one way to solve/reach a solution. I like to challenge students to reach their potential wherever it may be. I delight when the light bulb goes on in a student’s head (moment they understand). I wish to make learning fun and let students know they can achieve and do anything they set their minds to do. I relish the variety and making a difference by helping them see the connection between what they are learning and their lives. I cherish seeing students grow (spiritually, socially, emotionally, academically, physically).
