Educational Philosophy

My philosophy of teaching has been developed over many years as a practitioner in the field of public education.  I believe that I must create a classroom environment that teaches and inspires by example.  I believe that teaching and learning are interactive and inseparable, and that a committed and responsible teacher knows that all students can learn and it is the responsibility of the teacher to find the pathway to make all students successful learners.
