My Educational Philosophy
My core values are to: 1) Make rational, rather than emotional, decisions when dealing with other people. 2) Constantly assess how my actions will affect others around me. 3) Value work ethic and effort more than innate talent. 4) Maintain personal loyalties through honesty and transparency. These core values drive my actions in my personal relationships as a husband, father, and friend. They instruct my practice as an educator, teacher, and coach, and they provide the foundation for my belief system as a local, national, and global citizen.
