    My Philosophy of Education
    I am a teacher because I believe that education is a critical component in a child's life.  I believe that children deserve a safe and nurturing environment in which they can achieve personal academic success.  I envision my classroom as a community where children learn responsibility and respect for themselves and each other.  I strive to help each child gain confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth.  I am a teacher because I believe in helping children become lifelong learners.
