Personal Philosophy on Teaching: 
The students in the classrooms all around our country are the future of America. My philosophy is a long-term vision to create life-long learners who are interested in what they learn. Children need to be engaged in what they are learning and have a clear purpose for why they are doing the work. My goal is to build individual relationships with each student and foster an atmosphere of family in the classroom and school. Bottom line, I want every child in my classroom to love learning so they continue to learn their entire life.


Favorite Bible Passage: 
Romans 8:28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.
