She believes our students would continuously improve when given access to the proper tools and encouraged to effectively take ownership over the process. By identifying and discovering their skills, talents, abilities, passions, targeting a goal, and assessing their progress, she believes students can accelerate full speed ahead, reach their full potential, and be the best version of their own self that they can be, or what she likes to call the “IdealStudent”.
