Why I Love to Teach: I love to teach the children because I want to prepare them for a better future. In this early stage of learning, it is very important what they gain in order to be successful in life. A child’s life must be full of love, joy and a trust., I have a strong connection with both my kids and parents, so with teamwork I strive to have the children reach this accomplishment in order to continue their journey to the next step. The future depends on the past, so giving them wonderful memories can guarantee a wonderful future.

Why I Love to Teach: My number one reason I teach, and most people would say the most obvious one is because I love kids.
