As a former high school teacher and current elementary teacher, I hold myself responsible for creating a welcoming, student centered learning environment in which students feel supported, encouraged and challenged to take risks as learners. I believe students should be intellectually challenged with real world learning opportunities and provided with the resources, tools and skills to demonstrate and build upon their strengths and weaknesses. For my students, I set high expectations for knowledge acquisition, character development and use the academic medium to instill in them the desire to learn and work to their potential; to persevere and to help them become self confident life-long learners and successful citizens. As a personal goal I try to make the learning environment engaging and filled with higher level thinking and on-task fun.
