My Educational Philosophy

I will work to maintain an environment within the school system where each student receives a quality education through a shared vision with teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members. Every activity, lesson, and event that I am involved in will revolve around what is best for our students. I will strive to inspire and motivate students to reach a higher standard of excellence while collaboratively setting goals and implementing plans that will enhance the learning experience. I believe teachers should be facilitators, not dictators. Students will constantly be challenged through various activites that promote everydat growth.
