Teaching Philosophy

I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature. It is my goal as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. I help empower students to be good, responsible citizens and strong followers of Jesus. I want each child to leave my classroom believing in themselves, and knowing that, with work, they will be successful.
