John Muir Charter School is providing me with an opportunity to balance and explore the things that I value most in my professional life: mentoring young people in roles that can provide a decent and respectable livelihood; training young workers in modern best practices in construction in order to make lasting improvements to our built environment; and exploring and honoring ourselves and our journey through the challenges of life. I look forward to creating an environment where we can learn from our mistakes and where my students can learn to leverage their experiences and successes into greater opportunity for growth and stability.
