Thank you for taking an interest in We Are Voyagers. We Are Voyagers is the culmination of a lifelong passion for education. I began my teaching career in 1998 in Homestead, Florida as an English teacher at Homestead Senior High School. A crash course in teaching, this experience proved to be the most satisfying of my early life for many reasons, one of which has become my wife, partner, best friend, and mother to our two incredibly awesome daughters. This experience also forged in me a fire to understand the American system of schooling; this fire burns hotter today than ever.
This journey that began in a classroom in Homestead has led me places far beyond any that my imagination could have created. During my now 13 year career in education, I have started magnet programs, launched sports programs, built an English department for an online high school, published student newspapers, designed and developed a complete high school curriculum from scratch, and trained teachers from across the country.
It has all led me here, back to my roots. My first experience in the classroom at Homestead Senior High School lit a spark that has set me in motion. We Are Voyagers is a work in progress, and I hope that you will join me in helping to unleash the creative spirit in every child.
