My mission statement as an educator is to create a positive
classroom environment where all children feel successful, are active
learners and express themselves as individuals. I believe children need
to be surrounded with multiple opportunities for reading and writing
across the curriculum to solidify a strong foundation from which to
build. Positive reinforcement to good behavior and work ethic are
rewarded daily with verbal acknowledgment and recognition.
