Philosophy of Education
All students deserve a quality education delivered in an environment where they feel safe and are supported, challenged, and motivated to learn. Fostering positive relationships with students creates a community of learners who are willing to take risks and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Empowering the students to become the best versions of themselves is a responsibility that I take very seriously.
I am blessed to have four very active children. Ben is a college swimmer studying engineering. JT is a college soccer player who is considering becoming a teacher and a coach. Sarah is in high school and plays soccer and loves running. Claire is in middle school and loves to play soccer, volleyball, and to run. When I am not cheering them on, I love to spend time doing just about anything outdoors. I love to walk my dog, hike, bike, and hang out on my back patio. I also enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, and doing home improvement projects.
