Professional Goals

As a teacher it is my goal to teach students to be independent critical thinkers. I like to focus my classroom on making connections between content, students’ daily lives, and their futures. I strive to use a variety of media to accommodate diverse learning needs, while equipping students with the skills to analyze and evaluate the materials. Twenty-first century learning should be about preparing students for a constantly changing world with adaptable thinking skills.
