Teaching Philosophy

I believe my role as an elementary teacher includes; nurturing and encouraging the lifelong love of learning; and guiding students to continue to become productive and caring individuals ready to contribute to their community and face the challenges of 21st century. I also hope to encourage their love for God as they develop in their faith.

I want to encourage students to think creatively and explore their natural curiosity through hands-on activities and classroom discussions.
