***About Ken***

I'm passionate about teaching. I love watching kids succeed and helping people achieve their goals.


***Favorite Quotations***

To laugh often and much,

To win the respect of intelligent people, and the affection of children,

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, 

To appreciate beauty, 

To find the best in others, 

To leave the world a bit better—

whether by a healthy child,

a garden patch,

or a redeemed social condition, 

To know even one life has breathed easier because you lived, 

This is to have succeeded. 

—Ralph Waldo Emerson


“I must study politics and war, that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy..., that their children, in turn, may have a right to study painting, poetry, and music.”

—John Adams, American Revolutionary (adapted from a letter to his wife, Abigail Adams)
