My personal philosophy of education is to continually encourage children to believe in themselves and to always provide them with the best education and learning experience. I will work hard to meet each student's annual goals. All of my lessons will incorporate hands-on activities, in addition to the five senses. I will persistently strive to build a working relationship with each student. Furthermore, my classroom will be a safe and pleasant place to work, achieve, grow, and interact.
