Philosophy

I believe…

…in getting to know my students as individuals
…that any classroom is a two-way street and I can only teach if others are willing to learn
…in keeping parents actively involved in their child’s learning
…in using students’ own life experiences to enrich learning in the classroom
…in creating a respectful, supportive, secure and united classroom community
…in giving students choices in how and what they learn
…in keeping every student engaged in every activity
…in encouraging students to search for and reach for their highest potential
…in having high expectations for my students
…in making content authentic and real for students
…in collaborative learning
…in positive reinforcement
…that teaching is a process of continuous, lifelong learning
…in the shared responsibility and accountability of students, parents and teachers towards student learning
…in instilling a love of learning into my students that they will then cherish and make use of throughout their lives
