I strive to provide a safe, caring and engaging learning environment for each child. Preparing each student with the necessary tools and resources needed for a successful academic year is a top priority. Building a strong sense of self confidence, creativity, along with a positive work ethic is of equal importance in my teaching philosophy and style.I seek to create a successful and valuable learning environment for my students. My goal as their teacher: Valuing the different learning styles of my students, meeting each child where they are, moving them forward with solid academic and social growth, while building a solid foundation of good character for their future.
