Teaching Mission & Vision

  • Every child can learn and succeed.  There is no greater accomplishment than helping a child progress through different phases of learning and watching him/her reach the pinnacle of success. Each student needs to feel he or she belongs to the classroom community.  This sense of belonging begins with a teacher who accepts each child and works to bring out his or her abilities to the fullest extent.

    I seek to create a classroom with positive attitudes that allows each student to reach his or her full potential.
