-Philosophy of Education: I believe that all children can learn, no matter what.  I believe that, as a teacher, it is my job to find what works and what doesn't for children to learn.  I believe that the purpose of education is to show children what they CAN do, not break them down with what they can't.  My goal for every student is to be as indepdent in the world as they possibly can.  My goal as a teacher is to help students feel like they are safe and have a home in my classroom.  My goal as a teacher is to hold my students to standards that they can achieve.  As a teacher, I will support my students academically, behaviorally, and socially to the best of my ability.  I will make sure that my students receive my best self and what I have to offer from day one until the last day.
