My Teaching Philosophy

I believe that children are a special gift from God, each with his own talents and strengths. Our classroom is faith-based, with an emphasis on Christian Virtues.To reach each child, I use various forms of differentiated instruction in an attempt to assist each child in reaching his highest potential. My classroom is one of respect, acceptance, and support of one another. I believe emotional engagement is essential to learning, and that begins with me. In my classroom, you will regularly hear singing, laughter, and conversations taking place, along with both whole and small group collaboration. In addition, I am a strong advocate for positive home-school connections. I believe that together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of each child that walks through my classroom door.
