Major Core Principles of My Educational Philosophy

Champion for ALL Students

      • I believe that ALL kids can. ALL kids can learn, ALL kids can be successful; if they are given the proper opportunities and supports. I am motivated by the hope and faith that ALL students have in themselves and ALL educators have in their students.

Expect Excellence

    • I believe that all students, regardless of their race, socio-economic status, ethnicity, sexual orientation, perceived ability, or attitude should be held to the highest standard for learning when it comes to their academics and/or their behavior.

Constant Innovation

    • I believe that schools need to constantly be innovative in their instructional practices and their communication methods to stay current and relevant with each new generation of students.

Carry the Banner

    • I believe that we must tell the positive story of our school district, our students, our staff and our community. All staff needs to play a role in the positively "carrying the banner" for the district. By positively telling our story we can build a sense of pride, our identity and our desire to invest in our community.

Be a Merchant of Hope

    • I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be a part of something great! We must create those positive opportunities to impact our students both individually and collectively. We must create those long-lasting experiences that shape the lives of our students, staff, and school communities.
