I became a teacher to inspire and empower students by developing their wonderment of the world into higher levels of learning. I relish the creativity accompanying elementary age students with regards to school and learning. Whether it is the perseverance while beginning a new project, the curiosity while performing a scientific investigation, the pride after successfully tackling a complex math problem, or the enthusiasm while sharing a personal narrative; being an instrumental piece in the elementary stages of a student's life is not only a teacher's job, but an honor.
Teaching philosophy: My philosophy of teaching is student centered and focused on motivating each student to reach their full potential. I believe in a holistic approach to teaching the whole child in order to ensure emotional wellbeing and cognitive development.
