I adore having the opportunity to teach at SEA and to be a part of the SEA family. My favorite part of teaching is to see the joy of learning within students and see their interest and creativity grow to help share their futures.

What I love about SEA is that the students are in an environment where they can learn and be challenged in so many ways. Students are encouraged to challenge concepts and ideas that are presented and are encouraged to think outside of the box.
