Educational Philosophy: I believe that education means greater opportunity for everyone; knowledge allows us to grow within our communities and within the world to create change and advancement. As a teacher, it is my job to provide an evironment where students feel comfortable making mistakes, learning, and growing together with their classmates through collaboration. I believe students learn best when they feel safe and supported by their teacher and their classmates. The goal I make for myself is to inspire students to be curious to continue to learn-- no matter if their interest is in Spanish or not. It is my belief that all students can learn in an educational setting when their individual needs are met and understood; this means that I will always treat my students equitably to provide them with the same opportunities to succeed.
