Educational Objective

To quote Maya Angelou “People may not remember what you said but they will remember how you made them feel”. I know that I may not reach everyone of my students everyday academically but if I can make them feel that I truly care about them and that they are capable of doing whatever they put their minds to then I have done what I set out to do that day. With time I’m going to give them what they need academically.

My students are my teachers as well; everyday they provide me with an opportunity to learn how to reach them, how to get the necessary information into them and more on how NO two (2) students are alike. In addition, I also want to assure my parents that their babies school experience is very important to me. This is so much more than a job for me, and this is where I was born to be.  To pour all of the love and education that I possibly can into my students no matter the age or grade.
