My philosophy of teaching evolved after many years in the classroom. As I reflect on my beliefs regarding teaching and learning, I find that my mission as a teacher is as follows:

  • to promote positive learning;
  • to spark enthusiasm for learning;
  • to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning;
  • and to provide students tools for being the best person they can be.
