    My Educational Philosophy:
    I am a teacher that will provide a safe learning environment that will facilitate thinking, engage minds, encourage risk and cultivate dreams. I am a teacher that provides many opportunities for students to explore their talents and assist my students in the developing leadership skills. My teaching philosophy is best defined by the words of Martin Luther King, Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.
