I am dedicated to achieving academic excellence by actively engaging students, families, and teachers in creating a community of learners while fostering lifelong learning, continuous improvement and accountability for all. I believe in fostering each child’s initiative and independence through a risk-free environment. I will accomplish this by providing each student with love and support so that each child is confident enough to learn in their classrooms. I will utilize materials that emphasize different learning styles and the use of all senses of learning. I understand multi-intelligences and believe that every child has their own strengths and learns through different methods. I plan to foster this by providing different approaches to the same concepts being taught. Each child will progress through developmentally appropriate skills and activities in a structured learning environment.
