Philosophy of Education:
I believe that we are all created in the image of God. Each child has been gifted with unique gifts which, if identified and encouraged in a healthy way can be used to impact the world. It is very important to empower kids with more responsibility…they are more resilient and capable than we give them credit for. I also believe that it is important to create a failure-positive environment. This allows children to embrace challenges and discover ways to overcome said challenges. “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” -Ken Robinson.
Ultimately, my goal is to help students reach their full potential in all academic areas by providing an environment that is safe, encourages taking calculated risks, facilitates problem-solving and welcomes all ideas.
