"I work hard to build relationships with my students. When they accidentally call me ‘Mom’ I know I have done my job well. It fills my heart with joy to know how happy and excited they were and still are for me [because of the Milken Award]. I think they knew before, but now they know that I would do anything for them and that I truly love being their teacher. I think that every Milken Educator absolutely loves their job, and that makes all the difference in the world." —
