I love spending time with my sons and my family. I derive immense satisfaction from teaching, and I am dedicated to the profession. I enjoy reading, listening to music, watching movies and hoping that any Cleveland team will win. My favorite pastime is barbecue. It allows me to hang out with my sons, be outside and eat our delicious work. Just to be clear, barbecue is different from grilling, and they are both an amazing way to cook and bond with loved ones.

I enjoy spending time with my family; they make even the ordinary days feel like the best day ever! I also love planning trips to new places and exploring unique landmarks, shops, and restaurants. Reading is a passion I’ve had my whole life, which is what led me to become a teacher of all things language. Finally, I feel that teaching is not just my job, but also one of my hobbies. I find joy in finding new ways to help my students connect the content we are studying in class with their lives and the world around them and I strive to make our lessons meaningful and relevant to their future.
