I believe in the power of building an environment where each child feels loved, accepted, wanted, and liked. I believe in the power of choosing to be kind. I believe in the power of building each other up. I believe in the power of student interaction. I believe in the power of letting the children be in charge of their learning. I believe in the power of celebrating the little things. I believe in the power of making each child know that he/she is worthy and capable, of it all. I believe in children.
