Her Favourite quote is “Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insist that they become the best they can possibly be.” Rita Pierson

She believes that teaching is a passion and a natural gift in which training can improve but cannot make one a teacher. Effective teachers work from the heart to empower students and help them become independent learners. This is what Education is all about.
