Educational Philosophy
I support the Lakewood mission statement by providing each learner with opportunities and experiences to grow and change, embracing their future and inspiring them to become life-long learners.

Educational Philosophy:
The student-centered classroom that I have created has allowed me to differentiate my instruction to meet the individual educational needs of all diverse learners in my classroom.  My disciplined and yet nurturing teaching style creates a positive learning community guiding my students to become independent learners.  I express a love and excitement of learning in the classroom inspiring my students to have a life-long love of learning and reading.
