I believe that all students can learn and deserve a great education. In my classroom, I believe that teacher-student relationships have the power to eliminate most misbehavior as well as inspire and push students to their maximum potential. I try to promote students to be life-long learners with lofty goals, grand dreams, and give them the tools to do so. I believe that learning should be fun, and it is the teacher's responsibility to create fun, interactive, hands-on, exploratory lessons that invest students daily!
