Professional Summary

Students are not all the same, they have different needs and skills that they bring to the classroom and to the world. I want to create independent learners and thinkers by giving them the problem solving skills necessary to accomplish their goals and dreams. I want students to know that it is okay to ask for help when they have questions, that it is okay to not be perfect and that everyone is different because I believe it is important that students learn that the world is a diverse place and our differences should be cherished and become a sign of our strength instead of a handicap.
