Kristruly demonstrated whata "school teacher" is rather than a"classroom teacher" as he makes sure to help and support any teacher atany time. He is also demonstrated what it means to be reflective and aself-learner, as he is constantly seeking out how to build upon his strengthswithin the classroom. He serves his scholars and his team with humility andalways remains with a scholar-focused mindset.
