"My students are incredible. They will change statistics. They will beat odds.  

I believe these things - and that is why I do this work. I think it’s incredibly important for my students to see a successful black man in their school - one who cares about them as people, and who cares about the quality of their education. I want students to remember that I always showed them respect, and that I was always fair.  There are so many life lessons that I teach my students each day. But my desire is that they always remember to be their best selves in every situation, to treat others with kindness, and to be successful, contributing members of society."
