Vision
I inspire honesty in an enthusiastic and engaging classroom, where everyone is welcomed with respect for their individuality.

Mission
My mission, as a teacher, is to educate children through an integrated curriculum, to increase their self-image, and to produce confident-respectful members of our society.

Core Beliefs
All children have the ability to learn. Each student’s individuality can bring new ideas to the classroom. Social development is the foundation for further growth within education. Teachers should model how to use educational tools, while inspiring students to find their own solutions. Curriculum should guide an educational setting, yet give educators the opportunity to personalize their educational environment.
