I love, love, love Reading!

A Word About My Room...

Students enter my room to a caring and rich environment where they can immerse themselves in learning. I constantly strive to foster a caring environment where students feel safe (socially, emotionally and physically) and can, therefore, be successful learners and readers!

Educational Philosophy

It is my goal that each student develops a passion for learning and reading AND the responsibility and confidence necessary to follow that passion. I work hard to teach each child as an individual, meeting their specific needs and encouraging their strengths. 

Statements of Belief:

-The parent is the child's most profoundly influential teacher.
-Student self-esteem and security is critical to the development of an enthusiasm for learning (and reading!).
-Each student is important and must be taught at their level, offering challenge and support in instruction.
-Achievement requires hard work.
-Learning does not stop when the school bell rings at the end of the day.
-Student activities should prepare children for thinking and living both in and out of school.
