Teaching philosophy:

I believe as an educator it is my duty to encourage lifelong learning and nurture my students to appreciate the value of knowledge. Through the use of hands-on activities, continuous discussions, and light hearted fun, I will teach my students to think outside of the box and explore their curiosity. I want the students to feel comfortable in my classroom and know that I am there to help them grow into the best version of themselves.

 

I strongly encourage questions being asked in my classroom and that there is never a silly question. I want my students to become confident and resilient learners. I hope to have many opportunities brought to the classroom for critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity. You never truly stop learning and I cannot wait to learn alongside my students!
