 What I am committed to providing Holaway Elementary School students, parents, and staff:

I am committed to fostering independent and critical thinking in my students so they are able to tackle any challenge they may face. I am committed to teaching and nurturing responsible citizenship and motivate students to create a community that will improve the lives of themselves and others. I am committed to providing a welcoming environment for students, families, and colleagues that encourage collaboration and cooperation.


Three things I am working on this year are:

Creating rich, varied, and hands-on experiences across all STEM subjects.

Building on my knowledge of coding, robotics, and electrical engineering to provide learners with real-world and engaging challenges within these fields.

Developing outdoor and garden educational experiences for our learners.
