Educational Philosophy:
Education is the tool that assists people in overcoming any challenge that may arise in our personal and professional lives. We utilize our six senses to gain an understanding of the world around us in the present and what occurred in the past, in hopes to build a better future. It is my belief that everyone has the right to gain knowledge through education, and that educators must be able to bridge learning gaps to maximize a society's ability to reach educational superiority. Education is also a two-way street. Students and teachers must each be proactive in establishing a professional relationship that will create a healthy and flourishing learning environment.
