Day to Day

My office has an open door policy-anyone can walk in at any time and recieve help. Students come by my office to share their educational accomplishments and then we celebrate. It doesn't matter whether the accomplishment is big or small, it's worth celebrating. We talk about life, how decisions impact our world, and why it's so important to make good decisions. When I'm not working with students, I'm in the community building partnerships so we can create an environment where people thrive.
