Educational Philosophy

mission
I support the Lakewood mission statement by providing a safe and friendly environment while students are engaged to their maximum potential to receive the best education as possible.

Educational Philosophy:  I will motivate, inspire, and educate so that my students will develop a stronger sense of self-respect and self-confidence while pursuing the development of lifelong healthy practices. I believe in educating all of my students in the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they will need to develop these lifelong healthy practices. In order to do this, I believe in teaching to the National Standards in both health and physical education.  Teaching to these Standards teaches to the whole child and will help me as an instructor to reach the physical, social, and affective needs of all of my students.
