Educational Philosophy
I support the Lakewood mission statement by reaching to discover each of my students' motivations and talents in order to provide learning experiences that will help them grow toward their own unique potential.

Educational Philosophy:
Kindergarten is such an important time for children to learn what school is all about, and I strive to build confidence and a love of learning in each of my students. Little ones learn through play and imitation, so they need plenty of time to explore both academic and social concepts through engaging play. I like to spend as much time as possible in small learning groups or one-on-one with children. This allows me to tailor instruction to what a child needs right in the moment. I also want to foster a classroom community where we can all help, teach, and support one another.
