I believe in teaching the entire child by using strategies that enlist the multiply intelligence learning styles and by establishing relationships with students and parents. To build upon these relationships, I create two-way communication early in the school year to introduce myself, my holistic approach to teaching. a synopsis of the curriculum, and my high expectations of students. Failure is not an option in my classroom. I a not finished teaching until everyone has mastered a concept..
