Teaching Philosophy:
“I believe that all students have the potential to succeed by their own merit. They just need guidance from
the adults and teachers in their life. A student needs to feel comfortable in order to fully develop
academically and cognitively. I want to create an environment where a student feels safe enough to make
mistakes and confident enough to work through their challenges. All students can be great, it’s my job to
remind them every day of how amazing they can be.”
