Staff Directory

Our compassionate and skilled teaching staff is committed to providing a comfortable, orderly, and engaging environment in which students are taught how to learn and how to apply their new knowledge and skills critically and creatively. Instruction is differentiated, affording students opportunities to learn according to how they learn best. Cooperative structures are characteristic of our classroom instruction, which foster the development of appropriate social skills and valuable learning habits. 

I regularly observe students actively taking responsibility for their own learning and that of their peers. Students are taught to be open-minded thinkers and encouraged to interact patiently and respectfully. Through these learning opportunities, our students are empowered to be responsible learners who play an active role in the daily function of our school. Our dedicated professionals focus on providing an education that encourages and challenges each student to do their very best and perhaps realize a greater potential.
