Teaching Mission & Vision
My ultimate goal is for every one of my students to learn continuously and feel successful when they come to school. This is achieved by providing a safe learning environment full of positivity where everybody is accepted and expectations are high. As a class, we will develop a sense of community and an understanding that hard work and effort is often what leads to major accomplishments while conversely making mistakes along the way is an understandable, acceptable, and an essential component to how we learn. Development of this shared mindset goes a long way toward excellence in school and beyond.
