My educational philosophy is that every student will be provided with a safe, respectable and comfortable environment in which to learn. Every student will have an opportunity to learn and maximize their potential in my classroom. In return, students are expected to giver their best effort on a daily basis which will allow them create habits to not only succeed in my classroom but the rest of their educational careers.
