Tell us a little bit about yourself. I have an amazing track record- campbedstuy - the children love my program; they are the drivers we are their guide..

What's your philosophy on what it means to be a great teacher? Love - Passion and love to experience growth.  Innovation, over current standards. 

What advice would you give to someone who is considering becoming a teacher? Love it.. or don't do it..

In your opinion, what is the role of the live teacher in a world where it is becoming increasingly easy to get access to information through the internet and online courses? Use innovation, stem, art  and a free spirit approach  to  moving your classroom froward!

How can we, as teachers of children, work to build a society where people are respectful towards each other and the environment? Love Peace  Happiness
