I am dedicated to ensuring each student learns to their full potential and becomes a seeker of knowledge for their own gains. I will strive to teach my students to become responsible citizens who care for themselves and others. To accomplish this, I will provide a positive classroom atmosphere where clear expectations are provided and daily classroom routines are followed. Children will learn through exploration and play, direct instruction, and working with each other. I will collaborate with my students' parents and other professionals to encourage each student to achieve success. I will maintain and continue to develop my own professional skills to ensure my students are provided with the best instructional practices. I will strive to ensure that the excitement and happiness each child begins the school year with continues through his/her school year.
