Personal Mission Statement

Although I teach many different courses at Eastfield College, my goals remain the same for all. I want students to leave my classes much more knowledgeable, skilled, enthusiastic, and smiling. I hope that the end of the semester...will be the beginning of a lifetime of fitness and play.

I am passionate about what I teach, and strive to be a positive influence on their lives. I truly believe that "Life is Good," and hope to instill that same feeling in my students.
