Respect is the fuel I use to encourage, excite, and propel my students toward enthusiastic learning and academic success. I understand (and respect) that we all learn differently, and I gear my daily lessons around that fact. My daily goal is to keep students engaged, energized, and curious about reading and writing, which will ultimately lead to a life-long love of learning.

We, at Odyssey, have a rare and fortunate opportunity to make a positive and perhaps everlasting personal and academic impact on our students’ lives – these possibilities motivate me.
