Why you enjoy teaching Hillyer students:

Why I really love teaching Hillyer students is that I've considered myself a "late bloomer" when it comes to most endeavors;in other words, it took time for my potential to be awakened. So I feel a real connection there between where I was during high school and where many of them were in high school. I thoroughly thrive on being part of that process of awakening.
