"Freedom lies in being bold."
Robert Frost

Education Philosophy
I believe that each student is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to learn and grow and mature. Our class environment stimulates discovery, invites student participation, and promotes respect. In planning for lessons in life skills, pre-vocational skills, reading, and math, I incorporate themes, projects, group sessions, individual work, and hands-on learning to guide students to becoming active learners and bold members of the community.


Goals for Students
Become responsible for my learning and actions.
Believe in myself- my skills, my dreams, my joy.
Boldly and confidently use "I can..."  statements.
