"Education, in the broadest of truest sense, will make an individual seek to help all people, regardless of race, regardless of color, regardless of condition."

 -George Washington Carver

I am excited to combine my love for children with my enthusiasm for health and fitness to provide the students at Highland Terrace with a quality Physical Education program. It is my hope that they develop a strong desire for lifelong fitness and most importantly, a healthy self-concept and respect for others. I look forward to a wonderful and memorable school year!
