Educational Philosophy

I mostly work in a resource classroom so I know the importance of different learning styles in every person.  I believe every child can learn, they just learn differently than others.  As their teacher, it is my goal to find what motivates each child to help them reach their fullest potential.  I love to connect with students on a personal and academic level.  It is my objective to make them smart, confident learners.  Teaching children the value of reading is my goal as a teacher and a tutor.  To instill good reading skills in students sets them up for great successes in all areas of academia.
