My Teaching Philosophy


Teaching is not just a career for me, it is my passion! I believe in empowering children with the gift of knowledge. I have a strong passion to educate young minds and to help them blossom into well rounded, responsible, and successful individuals. I actively engage their eager minds by incorporating a variety of manipulative, enjoyable activities, and cooperative learning projects. In addition, I tailor lesson plans to meet their diverse interests, as well as demonstrate direct connections between the classroom and everyday life. I look forward to building a relationship with each student’s parents on a regular basis to promote parent participation in the educational process, reinforce education at home, and boost students’ self-confidence and self-esteem.
