Educational Philosophy
I support the Lakewood mission statement by creating a positive, supportive classroom environment for my students to learn in, inspiring a love for learning, and ensuring that my students are receiving the learning experiences that will best meet their individual needs.

Educational Philosophy:  
I believe that it’s crucial to create a positive classroom community in order to promote a healthy learning environment for all learners.  I am dedicated to providing a variety of experiences in order to appropriately challenge each child, while providing the individualized lessons to ensure they learn all what is needed to be successful.  I will work hard to ensure each student is receiving the individual time and support that they deserve. In our classroom we work collaboratively and are responsible for our learning.  Each child is unique, and our classroom allows for diverse learning styles, while encouraging a love for learning throughout second grade and beyond.
