Pedagogy Statement

I believe that all children learn best in an environment that feels safe and comfortable. Teachers and administrators must constantly be seeking opportunities to build strong, positive relationships with every child so that the highest levels of learning can occur. Students learning happens through instruction that promotes social, emotional and academic growth.
