Teacher's Vision, Mission, and Beliefs

My vision as a teacher is to have each and every student achieve his or her individual potential in a safe, positive and nurturing environment.

My mission is to maximize the opportunities for students to acquire new knowledge.  

I believe:    

  • Teachers must create a positive classroom climate that will foster respect, dignity, trust, and participation.
  • Students want to learn and have the right and responsibility to do so.
  • Each student and teacher has the responsibility to respect the right of others to learn.
  • Learning should be  enjoyable, rewarding and meaningful lifelong experiences.
  • Classroom management should be preventative, not reactive.
  • Reflection should be an integral component in my development as a teacher.
