“I believe that the future belongs to the educated because with education comes a broadened understanding of the world, the future implications of current actions, and desire for a better quality of life. But I also believe that the future is shapes by how people are educated. Through my teaching and influences, I hope to develop critical thinking of future leaders so they can make fair and just decisions based on critical and objective evaluations of situations and not by emotional attachments.”
Tracy Espiritu (NJ '14) Supervisor of Career and Technical Education
