My Educational Philosophy
At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents. ~Jane D. Hull You, as a parent, play a HUGE role in the education of your child. I plan on working closely with the 'team' of parent-teacher-child. I feel if all of us work hard, we will have a successful and rewarding year!
