"When I was offered the opportunity to start a soccer program that would upend the status quo, I couldn’t resist. We have started a one-of-a-kind program that puts children at SA elementary schools on a path to gain the skills to compete with the best soccer players in the state and the country."

"Whether my scholars are performing in a hallway, a classroom, or even a former storage closet, they will raise their voices in the face of forces and systems that might attempt to silence them."

"As a teacher and a musician, my greatest goal is to have scholars learn to enjoy music. I want them to be thrilled about making and listening to songs. If I can instill that joy in scholars at an early age, I hope that they’ll carry it with them, in addition to whatever other passions they decide to pursue."
