    My Philosophy:

    I believe that all students have worth and deserve a comprehensive, safe and nurturing environment so that they can develop intellectually, personally, socially, and physically. As a Special Education Teacher, I feel that it is imperative to level the playing field so that each and every student has the opportunity to be successful in his or her own way. My philosophy is to help students succeed by fostering a nurturing environment where the student will gain academic knowledge, life skills and self-confidence while empowering them to build coping strategies that will assist them in becoming successful and productive members of society.
