I am a life-long student-learner with an insatiable appetite for growth and contribution ‘that knows no defeat’.

I radiate and awaken possibility.

You can count on me:

  • To hold crucial conversations with candour, consideration and grace.
  • To seek out the greatness within each individual and tirelessly, yet enthusiastically help them reveal it.

I am process-focused and results-driven: uncompromising and unrelenting in the pursuit of excellence. I expect to do more than my share.

I WILL MAKE MY TEACHING WORLD CLASS.
