My Educational Philosophy
I believe that with the right amount of support and encouragement, every student can be successful. As a teacher, I promise to make every decision based on what is best for students. My goal each year is to help encourage and support all my students to become stronger readers, writers, and thinkers by the end of the school year. We will accomplish this through intentional lessons focused on our 10th grade College & Career Readiness Standards (Reading, Writing, Language, and Speaking & Listening)
