All about ME!!
My philosophy of education is every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I have children with learning disabilities and my heart goes out to all students (and their parents) who have learning disabilities. I believe and will help children develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. I will assist children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas. I have a vision of a world where people learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us, as the core of what makes life so fascinating. I am also CTKS Cross Country Coach and I will STRONGLY encourage my students to participate. ANYONE can run! It is more of a mental activity. It's been scientifically proven moderate to vigorous exercise improves the attention span of both children and adults.

Regular exercise is a safe and effective treatment for mild degrees of depression, and it also seems to boost the moods of people who aren't depressed. » read more...

I use the mobile social network "Celly" to communicate with my parents. Basically, I send out a mass text message, and parents are able to respond. » read more...
