Favorite Educational Quote and Why
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around" - Leo Buscaglia.
Why I Became An Educator?
When we help others, we help ourselves, too.
