About Me

I believe the classroom culture should include innovative opportunities to create community through social justice values, respect, and equality for everyone. Teachers must include the students need and interest, their knowledge from personal experiences, interactions, opportunities to explore hands on activities, social-emotional regulation through positive behavior supports, and self-constructed inquiry and knowledge through questioning. This style allows children to evolve and gain education through their lenses and world views.
