My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy
My philosophy as an educator places great value on helping students grow to be confident, understanding, and able. I believe that students that are confident in themselves and their strengths, whatever they may be, are better prepared to pursue their own unique interests. Understanding how the world around them works as well as the people around them helps students to be able to navigate their lives in a more enlightened manner. By helping students to realize how able they actually are, we allow them to become contributors to the betterment of all reaches of our society.
