Educational Philosophy: I am passionate about providing quality experiences for students using the most current and evidence-based strategies to promote understanding. Learning is a process that evolves over time and it is important to provide each student the opportunity to evolve. I believe that learning is reciprocal and that I can learn a great deal from students as well as teaching them.
