Defining Moment in my Education

In college, I did my fieldwork in Boston's inner-city schools.  The students faced many challenges in their homes and neighborhoods.  School was a place they felt safe and successful.  Personally, my family viewed education as a way to create opportunity. I always want students to enjoy coming to school and feel empowered by education.

Core Educational Beliefs

All students can learn. Assessment is a vital key to understanding what a child knows and needs to learn. Every student is unique and matching instruction to his/her ability is a vital tool for achievement.
