  • “I have always known I should be a teacher. It’s part of who I am and I love it. YE fits in with my personal teaching style of getting kids interested, moving and having them interact with the subject rather than just speaking at them.”

“I think even as adults, we experience a lot of self-doubt. But seeing a young person with no experience achieve success through force of will makes me think, ‘Am I doing everything I can? Am I listening to my own lectures and my own lessons? Am I walking the walk or am I just talking?’ I think that’s probably the most valuable lesson these YE students have taught me.”
