As Aristotle said: “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” My goal as an educator is to continuously challenge my students and watch them grow towards their excellence.
