    Welcome to 3rd grade!  I am so happy to have your child in my class.  We will be learning many new things this year! 
     
    Teaching Philosophy
    My teaching objective is to help students develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving strategies to put them on the path of intellectual independence.  As a teacher, I also share the responsibility of helping students to become thoughtful citizens.  This is achieved by adopting a classroom environment that exudes respect and kindness, and makes students feel secure and happy.
