• Philosophy

    I believe...

    • Education is fundamental in developing intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth for each child.
    • Students deserve a safe learning community that is interactive and organized, where students and educators are compassionate and empathetic to the needs of individuals. 
    • As an educator, it is incumbent upon me to cultivate a collaborative, cooperative, student-led classroom environment in which instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of all students.
    • Instruction should emphasize depth of knowledge gained through personal exploration of learning activities both as individuals and as members of a work team.  
    • A culturally enriched, stimulating, and engaging classroom environment is one in which students are able to freely inquire and are given opportunities for hands on learning.
    • Instruction should be student-centered and facilitated by the instructor based on the unique academic needs of each individual.
    • Learning experiences should be challenging, meaningful, engaging, and grounded in real-world applications. 
    • Cultivating a positive relationship with my students will help me to lead and inspire them to be problem solvers, innovative thinkers, and expert communicators.
