My favorite word is yet. I believe every person has a gift, and the key to a solid education is finding that gift, and helping students develop their strengths to overcome areas of need.
I have one son who graduated from MVCA in 2020 and is now attending LFCC to be an engineer. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, photography, reading and shooting sports. And, one of my hobbies is my education.
