“Every chance taken presents another chance for opportunity.” McHale said, “I was fortunate to have parents and mentors along the way who continually encouraged me to take chances, step outside of my comfort zone, and embrace opportunities. Following my return from Philadelphia, I seized the opportunity to teach at the college level and now at MMI. Interacting with my students on a daily basis affords me a glimpse into their worlds, their concerns, and their challenges. Each student has unique qualities and may learn at a different pace than their peers. My goal is to recognize their individualities and encourage my students to challenge themselves knowing there will be multiple opportunities in their future if they are willing to work hard.”
