What is your favorite quote and why?

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Maria Robinson
I am a strong proponent of young people understanding that perfection is a myth. I want them to know that in life we all make mistakes and the only thing that we can perfect is ourselves from day to day. Our mistakes and mishaps do not define us but if we are resolute about being a better version of ourselves than we were yesterday then we can rest assured that we are better, stronger, happier than the selves we used to be. Every single day presents a new opportunity for a re-do. Just decide not to go backward, as in not making the same mistakes over and over again, only forward using what was learned from yesterday to make better decisions.

What are the most rewarding parts of your job?
Seeing any one of my students, past or present, embrace independence, take initiative and accept responsibility for their lives and the direction they allow it to go.
