Philosophy of Education:
I believe every child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which they can grow to reach their fullest potential. It is my hope that I can guide them as they explore learning, share ideas, become effective users of information while fostering an appreciation for literature, and promote respect for all things and all people.
As a child, I loved reading books, often on my mother’s lap; but it was after I began teaching and became a parent that I discovered my passion for literacy. It is immensely rewarding to watch a child finish a book and then share their enthusiasm about it with others. Leisure time includes family, friends, gardening, cooking, and of course,
“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”
