• Educational Philosophy:
    My philosophy encompasses a number of different factors that all contribute to maintain a positive environment and a working classroom.  I believe that students must respect the opinions of their peers in order to ensure that all students have a comfortable learning environment.  I also believe that students must be given different opportunities to showcase their understanding and learning because we all learn differently. Finally, in regards to Social Studies and History, there is something inherently human about the topic that is embedded in all of us; so we must all participate in order to maximize learning.
