WHAT EXCITES ME ABOUT INNOVATE ME
I’m very passionate about working with children. It is the best part of my job. Every child deserves to have a good educational foundation. With Technology and its advances, it is important that we focus our educational approach towards finding new innovative ways to improve teaching and learning.
That is why I use my greatest passion “Story Telling” as the basis of everything I do. It is in our stories we challenge our imagination to grow and expand. The privilege of teaching kids how to groom their imagination to create amazing projects to solve solutions for problems unique to their communities is my strategy for economic development.
