Teaching Philosophy

I am a lifelong educator with a passion for learning. I believe that all students, including those with different learning abilities, can learn and be highly successful. An integral component of my teaching style is to incorporate the 3 R’s in my daily presentations: • Relevance…Students must understand why they need to master the subject matter. An effective teacher clearly shows the relevance of the curriculum through real-world applications. • Rigor…Students must be challenged and learning must reach the highest level for each student. • Relationships…Students must be respected and the effective teacher must develop close professional mentoring and coaching experiences with students.
