Educational Philosophy:

My educational philosophy is that education is transformational. It is my life mission to change lives through empowering students, teachers and the surrounding community. It is a personal thrill to see students overcome challenges and discover what is possible within themselves.

Teaching Philosophy:

I teach because I love the joy of watching a child dream, imagine, and think. I want to show my students that they have worth and value. I want to make true citizens of the world and for them to be well rounded. I teach because every day, my life has purpose, every day, I make a difference. I don’t just teach content, but so much more. I teach life skills; I teach morals; I teach wise choices; I teach compassion. I love to spend time with youngsters who need an adult who treats them with respect and kindness.
