“My interest in cars and all things mechanical is something I cannot explain; it has always come to me naturally. It was not until I sat in a classroom filled with other like-minded young students, learning about the finer points of the automobile, that I felt at home in an educational environment and my desire to learn more was fueled. As a teacher, my hope is that my students find comfort that they are in a place with like-minded curious people and I can provide spark and fuel for their passion and careers. I get fuel from their success – their success is my success.”
