Everything I wanted to do came from having the right teacher – it shapes your career and goals.
I believe in order to have a successful future, we have to enable change individually and locally.
Every student deserves the individualized, caring, consistent guidance of a mentor in his or her life.
All children deserve to have access to an excellent education regardless of their zip codes, their parents’ earnings, or the color of their skin.
I was lucky enough to have several mentors throughout my adolescence and every student deserves that level of patient, knowledgeable, inspiring support.
We have a civic responsibility to support education — it has the potential to create an even playing field for everyone.
