My Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher, I have grown to understand that a career in education is a commitment to the individual needs of my students. It is the daily challenge and extraordinary reward that we, as educators, are privileged to experience. My 8-year journey has allowed me to further explore my educational philosophy and develop the skills I need to become an outstanding teacher.  Encouraging students to become independent thinkers, motivating confidence, and promoting lifelong learning are some attributes that make my classroom successful for all types of students. 

I have great expectations and believe that the classroom environment should be an enjoyable yet effective learning experience. I hope to give my prospective students the opportunity to discover the importance of the role of education in their lives through working with them not only in the classroom, but also in extracurricular activities offered by Slocum Skewes. Furthermore, I am actively engaged in doing my best to help out the community of Ridgefield as well as make education better for the students of tomorrow.
