"I will be there for my students, care for them, listen to them and lend them a hand when they are in need. I will be honest, trustworthy and fair so that they always feel safe and loved while under my care. I will praise their efforts, celebrate their successes and help them learn from their mistakes. I will be positive, patient and respectful so that they can learn from my example. I will encourage them to discover their voice, their talents, and their dreams. And I will create a challenging, interesting and fun environment, so my students will come to love learning as much as I LOVE teaching!"

"My goal is to help each of my students be successful in the classroom. I will encourage them to learn through exploration and each other. I will give guidance and love to my students through each milestone in Kindergarten. I will be the teacher my students feel safe and comfortable with. I love giving positive reinforcement to my students! And I will always be someone they can lean on. I am big on communication and staying in touch with parents/guardians so we are all always on the same page. I love the career path I have chosen and I am excited to begin another BIG year in Kindergarten!"
