WHY I TEACH

I love teaching because I view it as an important part of building empathy in society. I believe that the positive, kind influence of a teacher can make a difference in a student’s life and can set off a chain reaction of empathy and kindness in society. I hope to inspire students to continually seek after knowledge.

EDUCATIONAL BELIEFS

I believe that modeling kindness and a love of learning is one of the most important things I can do in my classroom. I put students’ social and emotional needs first. In fact, I want to create a space where students feel comfortable loving anything. Appreciation of beauty is a skill I want to build. From art, to literature, to music, I want to build appreciation and make connections. I believe that the more connections students make between school, individual classes and their own lives, the better.

PROFESSIONAL GROWTH

I continue to grow as an educator through reflection and continuing education. I strive to utilize collaboration as means of growth and connection. I am dedicated to continue my quest as a lifelong learner.
