Educational Philosophy


My Educational Philosophy

When teachers provide Great Lessons Everyday that have an emphasis on digital literacy, students will be ready for college and or a career. As teachers We work to develop the Whole-child, which means developing the social and emotional health of a child as well as focusing on content. To truly close the Achievement-Gap, so that All students can achieve We must focus on reducing the Opportunity Gap that exist in many of the urban school districts throughout our nation.
As a Teacher, I will provide for My Students the following:

Ready for College and Career
•    I will inspire, challenge and empower my students to forge their own futures. I am are committed providing the tools to be successful in college and to be career ready.
Support for the Whole Child
•    I will develop the Whole Child by focusing not only on academic success but also providing a safe environment that supports and engages the social, emotional and overall health of the student.
Close the Opportunity Gap
•    I will close the opportunity gap and increase school achievement by fostering a culture of equity for All Students.
