What is Your Goal For Your Students?
“My goal for my students is to strive to be the best version of themselves while giving their education their all. There are so many things pulling them in multiple directions so I want them to take time to purposefully decide what goals they want to accomplish in their education and personal life. While I want them to be 100% confident in their mathematical abilities, I know that in all reality my goal is to help them find success in becoming a young adult as they transition from high school to their future endeavors.” -Ms. Sara Butler
