      "I have many goals as a teacher.  The first is to be a guide for each student as he or she walks down his or her own unique path.   The second goal is to help each student realize that every organism has its own, equally valid path that must be respected - including yours!  Above all, I strive to instill the love of learning in all of my students so that they may lead happy and healthy lives no matter where their path leads them later in life.  While our paths cross, I look forward to working with you."
