Teaching Mission & Vision

  • My mission as a second grade teacher is to motivate, encourage, and support students by providing a safe, secure, and trusting classroom environment.  It is my goal that all of my students learn to their highest potential.  

    My vision is a classroom where all of my students develop the curiosity to seek knowledge on their own and have the courage to try new things and strive to be the best they can be.
