Philosophy

  • Each child is unique and is to be valued and respected. I enjoy nurturing a child's intrinsic gifts to help him or her reach a potential that is often so much fuller and greater than anyone can imagine. I believe in teaching from the heart while creatively maximizing the methods, materials, and curriculum available to me. And when it comes to being a teacher, going above and beyond for my students isn't to be applauded, but expected.
