Philosophy of Education

I am a teacher who believes the most important aspects of a student’s education are relationships, creative thinking, and engaged, cooperative learning.

As an English/Language Arts teacher, my focus is to build a curriculum that develops and strengthens students’ reading and writing skills, their connections and communication with one another, and their links to the world beyond the classroom. My education philosophy centers on positive learning environments. I believe that a classroom focused on cooperative, positive learning gives students the opportunity to interact with both their peers and teacher, challenges students to think both critically and creatively, and allows for growth both in and out of the classroom.
