Philosophy of Education
My philosophy as a teacher begins with understanding that each child is a unique and special gift from God. It is a blessing and privilege to teach our faith-filled learners. I believe that children thrive in a classroom filled with kindness, respect, excitement, and joy. I believe students find success when learning is interesting and when students are actively involved in meaningful exploration. I strive to create an environment where children feel safe to discover their talents and develop their curiosity.
