“The best part of my job is students coming to class each day eager to learn.”

“I was surprised I was able to fit in right away, thought is was going to take some time, but I quickly became friends with many people. We’re now a very close group.”

“Whatever your interest-sports, math, science, arts, whatever, you can pursue it here.”
