My name is Tenzin Dhadon. I am Tibetan, and was raised in India. I am very excited to meet and form relationships with my students and the staff. I love teaching because I truly enjoy being around children and interacting with them. It's incredible how not only do the children learn in the classroom setting, but how much I learn from them! A thought of just making a difference in someone’s life, espeically a child, goes far beyond knowledge. Together, we inspire, support, mentor and get the chance to do all that is fascinating.
