East Amherst, NY | Years Taught: 32

Mr. Knab;s vision: “ I believe all students must achieve. I believe the teacher is only one path through which knowledge flows. I believe learning occurs best through each student’s point of motivation. I believe successful teaching comes in the ability to provide inspiration. I believe students must be taught not only the skills and knowledge of a discipline, but also taught how to continue that learning throughout life.”
