If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow. John Dewey

It has always been my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.

In education and in life, possibilities are endless when given the necessary tools to learn. I am proud to be a part of a school striving to create an environment where technology opens a world of opportunities, allowing students to soar beyond the classroom. At Academy of Dallas students and teachers engage in a mixed-mode learning program using both an online and in-person approach to education. We believe the classroom of the future is supplemented by online learning, where the online and in-person learning experiences parallel and complement one another. The students have an element of control over time, place, and pace. The Blended-Learning modalities at Academy of Dallas provide an integrated learning experience for all students. We are proudly helping students learn anytime and anywhere.

I am equally as proud to be a part of the testing environment. The assessments, both state and local, provide a data point showing clear evidence of teaching and student learning. I am compassionate about student success and will always strive to be a guide for others through sharing of knowledge and resources as I continue to learn. Academy of Dallas is my heart!

“Education is not the piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, or abilities … but is rather making visible what is hidden as a seed.” – Thomas Moore
