Statesmen value that best represents me

Relationships – I have seen that when a student loves his teacher, he will exemplify whatever of the other values that the teacher asks. We can’t lose for winning if the relationship is right.

Why I serve

I serve because I am called to serve and reminded of that call each and every day that I walk into a building where children are being educated.
