Life is an adventure with students.  I have had the privilege of being both inside and outside the classroom for the past 12 years, and what I can claim confidently about this continuous experience is that I learned almost all my life lessons from students and my interaction with them, therefore, I feel that I am responsible to pay it forward to the next and next group of students I will have during my course of career. Alvin Toffler mentioned perfectly in The Third Wave that education for the world of the 21st century is not about memorizing the structure of an amoeba or governments, but it is about learning the structure of everyday life. Admiring that view, no matter where life takes me, my mission is to help students learn about life with real life opportunities to be ready for the real world.
