Welcome to class!  I anticipate a year of growth, progress and success!

My mission as a teacher is to provide a positive, safe and caring environment where students will be motivated to do their best and experience success. The skills they learn in their public education career lay a foundation for independence in school, as well as in society.  I strongly believe that students must recognize that they are responsible for their actions AND their own learning, and they have the power to choose how well they do in school and in all aspects of their lives.  I also believe that showing respect for all individuals is a fundamental quality to cultivate and practice.  These qualities will be consistently discussed and reinforced in my classroom. ~
