Mission Statement

Responding to each student’s academic needs so they may reach their full potential.

“Each student that steps into my classroom has a different background, different life experience, and different academic needs. It can be challenging to meet everyone’s needs, as no two students are exactly the same. Sometimes there are frustrations, sometimes there is laughter, and sometimes there are tears. I love all of my students dearly and I want them to succeed in every part of life whether academic or personal. Watching my students grow, develop, and gain new skills is always a pleasure to behold. Even though I may have to put in long hours and use lots of energy, it is always worth it in the end. Being able to interact with my students is a joy, and I always appreciate it when my students respond warmly. I love my job and I love my school.”
