I believe that a teacher should inspire a love for learning. I believe each student has an unlimited potential to grow and develop as a whole person, and that a teacher's role is to support that growth in any way possible. My classroom will be a safe place where my students feel comfortable and welcome, no matter their background, culture, race, beliefs or values. I believe that a respectful and considerate classroom environment stimulates responsiveness and active participation. I will adapt curriculum to meet my students' needs and interests in order to spark their curiosity.
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." -Aristotle
