Teaching Philosophy: I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet those areas in their fullest potential.  I’ve always felt that as an educator if we can teach children how to learn, rather then what to learn, their ideas will become unlimited.
