Teaching Philosophy

I strive to create a classroom environment that is open to failure, mistakes, and persevering. I want my little leaders to feel empowered to learn. As they go through this so-called journey of life, I want the leaders in my class to create relationships built on trust, honesty, and fun, because learning should be fun. I believe that parents are the primary educators in a child's life and I am here as a guide to lead your child to be the very best versions of themselves. I am praying for a great year of 2nd grade, and with God's guidance, you and your child will be blessed twice as much as when you first came into my class. 

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11
