My Class Mission & Teaching PhilosophyI believe that all children can learn, if given the right tools. Our classroom will strive to be a place where all children will have the opportunity to show their individual strengths and build upon their unique differences. I believe that education and learning should be fun, exciting, and challenging. If young children develop a love for learning at an early age, that love will continue to grow as they do.Through the use of projects, hands-on activities, technology, and cooperative learning I will do my part to encourage and motivate each child to achieve at their highest level and develop into life-long learners. I know that education is a partnership between home, school, and community. I can be available at anytime for a parent conference, to share concerns, or questions. Through working together, we can make 2nd grade an enjoyable and challenging experience.
