“First and foremost, children are extremely discerning when it comes to trusting adults.  It is my job to build a relationship with each child so they trust that I have their best interest at heart.”


“It is not my job to teach them from the beginning to the end.  It is my job to take them where they are, and move them closer to that end.  I am just one stepping stone on their journey of life.”
