"I know I'm succeeding as an educator when my students come back and visit me and tell me how successful they are in high school, or even in college! My life as a teacher doesn't end when the students leave my room. I always say they are stuck with me forever. I send them letters when they are starting high school. I go to their sports games. I go to their high school graduations. They may be with me for only 183 days, but I know I am successful when my students grow up to be independent and successful citizens." — Spotlight interview
