Success in my classroom is measured by how hard you are willing to work. If at the end of year, a student feels like he or she has been pushed and motivated to work hard through the “failures,” then that student has achieved success. Self-motivation, drive, perseverance: these are the characteristics that will last well beyond the student’s time at EHS and take her far in life.
EHS is an awesome place to work. I love that I am surrounded by some of the most intelligent and hardworking people I know. My interactions with my colleagues push me to be a better teacher and I feel like I am always learning from them.
As a science major in college, I would always hear about how important it was to be published and have your name attached to some new research in your field. One of my proudest moments was when, a few months after graduation, I received the copy of my research team’s paper that was soon to be published in a scientific journal. It is very special to me knowing that I was able to contribute to the growing body of scientific knowledge in our world.
