 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, parents, and colleagues that encourage collaboration and cooperation.

 

Three things I am working on this year are:

Creating rich and varied experiences across all subjects that accommodate different learning styles.

Communicating learning goals and expectations more clearly and consistently to students and parents.

Establishing greater communication with parents and families and increasing more positive feedback to parents and students.
