Education Reform

I am passionate about learning. I believe our schools should be a place where the flames of passion and interest in life-long learning are ignited and fanned.

I believe that a new measure of a student's success in education shouldn't be grades or test scores but the development of a passion and intrinsic motivation for learning.

Grades and test scores can only go so far, but if that interest and motivation to learn is planted deep within a student, they will an internal desire to learn for a life time that won't be based on the dictates or approval of others but based on a natural curiosity and interest that will be self sustaining.
