Philosophy of Education

I feel that each child I teach is deserving of my highest efforts in all areas of his or her school day. I believe that each child can learn and should enjoy his or her learning in a caring community. I know we don’t all learn and take in information in the same way, and it’s my job as a teacher to find the most effective path for each student. I am committed to Catholic Schools and believe they offer the best framework in which I can ensure my students’ spiritual, emotional and academic progress.
