• To Students and Parents:

    I believe that all of my students bring unique talents, characteristics and experiences to the classroom and I will do my best to make this a valuable place of learning for each and every one of you.

    You are all equally important members of my class and I promise to go the extra mile to help you reach your individual learning potential.  Your own effort is just as important to your success, so I am going to ask you to work hard as well.

    I recognize that success is all about persistence, and in my classroom I aim to foster a positive environment where students are comfortable not getting things right the first time around.  Through trial and error, we will find what works for YOU.  I will not give up on any student.

    I look forward to facilitating a learning environment that makes you excited about your future!  I will provide you with lots of variety in your settings, roles and learning content.  It's vital for you to see the limitless possibilities you have in this world and discover what YOU love to learn.

    I promise to listen to you, learn from you and make adjustments in my own work to better help to meet your learning needs.  I strive to continue improving as a teacher and I ask that you do the same as a learner.
