Why I do this work:

There are three reasons for why I do this work. The first is that I believe learning is a community endeavor, and that we all have a collective responsibility to serve the next generation. Another reason is that education has been a transformational force in my life, and I hope sharing its power helps others find success and happiness. Finally, I simply love learning, and I hope that every student–regardless of their background, heritage, or abilities–can similarly experience that joy in their lives.
