    My Philosophy of Education

    Children are our most valuable resource. As educators, it is our responsibility to educate in a way that will effectively provide for our nation’s future. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we strive to do our best to empower students to achieve to their optimum potential in the short time that we have available. I have a drive to provide situations that grant both memorable and positive experiences for my students.

    I am thankful that I have had many wonderful opportunities to not only educate and touch lives, but also be touched and educated by each of my students and the teachers I encounter. Learning is a lifelong process. I have appreciated each situation that has rewarded me with new knowledge, skills and understanding. I am looking forward to many more opportunities to positively affect the lives of my students and instill in them the desire to join me in the journey of lifelong learning.
