Reasons for Teaching

A Little More about Me

A Final WordI believe that students can and will learn whenchallenged to do so in a safe and nurturing learning environment. I also believe that a goal of teaching children must be to develop lifelong learners who can discover big ideas and great concepts independently. Finally, I believe that it is of vital import that all students read the great classics and ponder the thoughts of historys greatest minds.
