Coach Statement.

I created The Guru School to provide an affordable space for children to grow intellectually, physically and emotionally. To give kids access to certain resources that they wouldn’t normally have and to empower every child and young adult to achieve more. It is an honor to work with the youth of my community and I am committed to teaching and uplifting children at The Guru School for years to come.
