MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
I have embraced the same core teaching philosophy for the last 27 years. I truly believe that if a child feels loved, secure, and accepted he/she will thrive academically and emotionally. Students need to feel an "ownership" in their education. We must instill in them a love of learning so that each child will become a life-long learner! Lastly, I feel very strongly that each child should feel a sense of accomplishment and achievement in my classroom all while having fun!
