I consider education an ongoing process for all people regardless of age or experience. I will be learning new things from your child as well as guiding them in their exploration of the living world.
My expectations for your child: I would like to see your child bring to class his or her unique talents and use them as we explore together the living world. I would like to see every child work up to their potential and strive to do their best by completing homework on time and participating in class in a cooperative and respectful manner.
