 philosophy



Teaching 8th grade math has always been my passion!  I do think that the mission of an 8th grade teacher is slightly different in that I am trying to prepare the students for the next four years.  My beliefs have been gathered from my past 13 years of teaching.  They are as follows:

1.  Accountability, self-discipline, and self-advocacy are the expectations at the high-school level.  These skills will be encouraged and instilled in my classroom.

2.  The definition of self-efficacy is the belief that you (the student) are capable of performing in a certain manner in order to achieve the goal.  It is my job to help you believe that you CAN do the math!  I have never had a student who was incapable of learning.  It may take some extra time, but you will be able to do it!

3.  Hard work always equals success.  I am always available daily during lunch for additional tutoring.  The help is always going to be there...you just need to ask for it!

4.   Effective learning requires communication between the parents and the teacher.  Parents, please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason.  You know your child best!
