Classroom Philosophy

  • We are starting a new school year in a whole new way through remote learning. My goals will be to engage students and challenge them at their individual levels.  As a class, we will be working on developing a sense of classroom community, even remotely.  Positive social relationships are key to staying connected in a typical school year and even more so now.  We can do hard things! Here's to a great year.
