Why do you like teaching children?

I like teaching children because I love seeing the progress each child  makes when they figure something out, receive praise, or do something  correctly. The child-like wonder is why I like teaching children.    

What do you love most about your job?

I love being on my feet and getting to help students become the best  versions of themselves through Taekwondo.

What is your favorite quote?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that  we are powerful beyond measure. You’re playing small does not serve the  world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people  won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.”  -Marianne Williamson

What other hobbies do you have?

Hiking, rock climbing, singing
