Teaching Philosophy

As an educator, I believe that students learn best in a safe and supportive learning environment built upon strong, caring relationships. I strive to build a culture of curiosity and hands-on learning in my classroom by facilitating and guiding differentiated cross-curricular inquiry and problem-solving projects. I aspire to empower my students to connect, collaborate, and share their learning with authentic local and global audiences. As a life-long learner, I strive to model my passionate curiosity and love of learning through ongoing reflection, professional reading, and engagement in online global professional learning communities.
