I graduated from ACS, returned to work years later, and am now coming back a third time. Something about this place!
I gravitated towards teaching when I discovered the sense of mission and hope it inspires. I am proud to say I have never had a 'bad' class or one in which learning did not take place, usually in students and myself.
I enjoy making music and cooking, which are basically the same thing with different utensils and sometimes in the same place.
I used to think Gatsby was a character to emulate until I read Catcher in the Rye, and now I ask myself ‘what would Holden do?’ when I’m in doubt.
