“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
— Benjamin Franklin
My philosophy of education is to empower students with the knowledge to become self-motivated, exemplary citizens, and lifelong learners through a student-centered active learning environment. Higher achievement comes when students are intrinsically motivated and excited about learning.
This learning happens through experimenting, experiencing, and creating meaning through reflections of their new knowledge. I am very fortunate to be a part of such an environment and will work hard to ensure that all my students are given the opportunity to be the best learners. We will laugh, struggle, and learn from each other!!!
Outside of school, I love to visit museums and galleries, my favorite being the Louvre. I also have a passion for traveling to Spain, France, Germany and Italy.
