Professional Mission Statement

As an educator, my professional mission statement is to enhance K-12 learning environments by modeling effective, research-based instruction in the classroom, and through the delivery of instructional workshops available to any learners interested in broadening their 21st century literacy skills. Collaboratively, the school and local community will produce culturally responsive, globally competitive, life-long learners prepared for life in the 21st century.

I Believe...
  • lifelong learning is an essential element of life-long happiness.
  • students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
  • communication is essential for success.
  • learners must be self-advocates and confidently communicate their learning needs.
