Personal Message

I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with your child! My favorite quote, that for me captures the essence of good teaching, was given to us by Albert Einstein:
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge..."
As an educator, I feel it is my awe-inspiring responsibility to ensure that children are actively engaged in the learning process, always putting forth their best effort, and developing into life long learners. I strive to encourage children to develop an inquisitive spirit, an enthusiasm for learning, and respect for themselves and others. It is my ambition to always inspire children to feel confident in their abilities, assume a constructive role in society, and develop and refine skills that will last a lifetime.

Write to me, Scholars! I'll write back!
