Philosophy of Education

I believe that all children are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. I will assist my students to express themselves and accept themselves for who they are, as well as embrace the differences of others.
Every classroom has its own unique community; my role as the teacher will be to assist each child in developing his or her own potential and learning style. I will incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activate students’ learning.
