Welcome to My Sixth Grade Classroom
seventh through twelfth grade English, writing, and public speaking in

Educational Philosophy/Vision: A
philosophy of teaching begins with my wanting to provide a safe
environment for all students in which each is accepted and respected.
The student, regardless of his/her age, should learn and grow socially,
emotionally, and intellectually with my guidance. I maintain high
expectations for all students and encourage each to take risks and try
new tasks outside his/her comfort zone.
