My Educational Philosophy
My priority as an educator is to provide my students with a safe and productive learning environment for each student to reach their maximum potential. I believe all students can learn and grow with appropriate support. Through education, I want to help my students gain confidence and prepare them to become productive citizens of tomorrow. I value and truly enjoy creating personal connections with students. I have found that in doing so, we are able to create a positive classroom atmosphere that is conducive to learning and growing.
