As I walk into a classroom, I strive for the most gratified and engaged children. I strive
to create an atmosphere that encourages creativity, individuality and diversity. A home
away from home that promotes kindness, critical thinking skills and good citizenship. A
friendly environment that welcomes everyone with open hands and hearts and is here to
teach with a positive attitude and knowledgeable background.
