Philosophy of Education

As an educator, I believe it is vital to nurture the potential in every student and support them in achieving academic success. Creating a classroom environment where students feel safe, engaged, challenged, and motivated is always my goal. I enjoy encouraging and guiding students into becoming confident learners. Also, I appreciate the opportunity to have a Christ-centered classroom where students can learn from our greatest teacher.
