Philosophy of Teaching:
I believe every child is a gift from God. With His help, I hope to encourage the children in my care to excel in all areas: spiritually, academically, and emotionally. Forming relationships with my students is imperative to this goal.
I hope to give my students the foundation in mathematics needed to be successful in future math classes and their everyday lives. I plan to carry out this goal through various teaching strategies, the use of technology, and creating an atmosphere that is non-threatening and welcomes student questions.
