Meet Our Faculty

I feel like I’ve grown the most socially here. There’s a line in “It’s a Small World,” that “a smile means friendship to everyone.” I was like, maybe that’s cheesy but it might work… and people responded with a smile. I’ve made some good friends here and I’m really happy about that.
