MY TEACHING STYLE

I feel that this is where impressionable, developing minds need a positive role model. As a teacher, I strive to help develop each student’s inherent ability to the fullest extent in an atmosphere that fosters character development, strong ethical values, academic excellence, self-discipline, creativity, and civic virtue. I firmly believe an atmosphere of educational excellence is achieved through a strong educational community consisting of students, faculty, parents, and the community at large.
