Philosophy/Mission Statement: For me, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, give them a sense of self-respect and respect for others, make them believe in themselves and in their abilities. One of my favorite quotes comes from the Wizard of Oz, where Glinda tells Dorothy, “You’ve always had the power my Dear and you just had to learn it for yourself.”
