I am a firm believer in the power of an educated mind. I strongly believe that children have a desire for knowledge and it is my goal to add to that desire. I strive to have a good relationship with parents and students and I push students to meet the high expectations that I have set for them in my classroom. Students are expected to follow rules, be respectful, and participate in their learning in my classroom. This enables me to provide them with a fun, positive, safe learning environment. I always start the new school year with great enthusiasm for the learning that is about to take place.
