My goal is to instill the love of learning in every child so that each one becomes a life-long learner. I believe a nurturing, loving and child-centered environment encourages children to become risk-takers and problem solvers. Teaching not only academics but the whole child including social, emotional, and physically development is vitally important. Knowing that each child is unique, the use of multiple techniques and teaching styles will ensure the success of every child. I believe the teacher is a facilitator who guides the children on their path of learning. I have high expectations myself as an educator and strive to be that "Life Changer" for every child. These high expectations also encourage each child in my class to reach their highest potential.
