Philosophy
I believe the purpose of education is to develop the entire child while encouraging students to be creative,
independent thinkers. I work hard to bring out each childs hidden talents and to develop students who strive to
reach their highest potential. I feel it is essential to promote a love of learning that will remain with my students
for the duration of their entire lives.

Objective
My objective is to teach in a pre-school through third grade setting where I can make an impact on
students life long learning each day.
