I believe in…

Teaching for Tomorrow

Providing a safe and inviting learning environment for all students to feel like they belong.

Ensuring that all students be seen, heard and valued, regardless of who they are, what they look like, or where they come from.

Listening with an open mind, and an open heart.

Speaking with equity, diversity, and inclusion at the center of my practice.

Approaching each day with the necessary preparation, purpose, and intention to be successful.

Building relationships based on support, respect, connection, and trust.

Creating meaningful, relevant, and engaging learning experiences for my students.

Exploring alongside my students while they direct their learning to discover deeper understandings.

Encouraging creativity in all things to form personal connections, real world awareness, and deep understandings.

Growing with students through learning about ourselves and the world that we live in.

Striving to leave each moment better than I found it.

Aspiring to dismantle social injustice and oppression, and build a better future together.

Inspiring passionate thinkers, doers, activists, advocates, believers, and dreamers.

Changing the World Together
