    What drives me to be here are the students and the opportunity to connect with them. Teaching is about choice, commitment, energy and enthusiasm. The student inspires me to be the best educator I can be. I love working at the college level because of the opportunities to continue my education and in turn share my knowledge of the latest technologies with the students.
