This is a one hundred word statement to tell you about myself, my work and my teaching philosophy. I’m glad to know that you are using this moment to learn a little about me. I would like to know a little about you as well. I sat and wrote this statement for about an hour. I wrote and rewrote it many times in order to get you the right words. I’m still not sure if these are the right words. The one thing I know is that I reached my goal of one hundred words and sometimes that’s good enough.
