What do you love most about teaching the subject you teach? I am a product of my international upbringing, and being able to share that through this class has been exciting. I have a passion for the people of the world, and this class is an excellent avenue for spreading this love. 

Most memorable moment at Ben Lippen so far? Two years ago, I organized with a small group of students to pull a prank on one of my classes. It was an intricate plot that involved a cell phone, and much fake anger. It was not part of the script to have one particular student douse me with a large cup of water. The expression on my face was so authentic, because I was authentically shocked.  It will be a story that I tell for years to come.
