My goals as an educator are based on the foundation of uniting teacher and students in a diverse, collaborative, and safe environment where learning is achieved by all. Through cooperative learning, inquiry based teaching, guided discovery, and hands on experiences; your child will thrive both academically and socially. My teaching is a combination of cognitive, kinesthetic, and discovery based techniques. It is my priority to know my students and accommodate their individual learning needs accordingly. I consider my job as an educator to be that of a facilitator of learning; where I continuously guide my students to discover, inquire, contribute, and empower their own learning. I teach and live by the following notion; not every child learns the same way, but ALL children can learn!
