My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all children deserve a high quality education, as it is the surest way for them to overcome obstacles, strengthen their character and obtain success. It is imperative that schools provide students with a safe, equitable and rigorous environment filled with collaborative and loving educators who care for them while simultaneously holding them to the highest standards of academic achievement. Our most important responsibility is educating children and we must do so in a way that values diversity, develops their character and prepares them to make meaningful contributions to society.
