First and foremost, I have always believed that all students can and will learn in my classroom. To accomplish this, I continually strive to be a creative, innovative, enthusiastic and motivational facilitator of learning. I always challenge my students to do their very best in order to reach their fullest potential. I endeavor to make learning a purposeful and meaningful activity that provides my students with choices and an opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning. It is my goal to create a positive learning environment that is conducive to learning. Finally, as a teacher I believe it is important to possess a willingness and openness to continue learning and growing as an educator.
