Defining Moment in My Educational Philosophy

  • A student of mine approached me at 8th grade promotion and said, "Mrs. Geltz, I didn't think I could do it, but then I did." I love to see students accomplish something they previously thought they could not. I believe every student should learn where they feel safe and where individual growth is celebrated for every child.
  • EVERY child CAN learn, and it is my pursuit to make that learning accessible, despite any challenges a student may face.
