A Defining Moment in Education
I am a forever student. I self educate every moment and learn new things every day. Each year I learn so much from my students and I never stop finding new ways to teach them. I will never forget the students that I have had over the years. These students have helped me define who I am as a teacher because of all the quality moments we have built together.
Core Educational Beliefs
I try to make my classroom an environment of independence and responsibility. Learning is a very personal journey and I am honored to be a part of that. Learning is a community event too. I believe that collaboration with peers and other professionals is an important connection. My class embodies this as we work together and learn from each other.
