Educational Philosophy

  • Every child should have the right to learn and receive a quality education.
  • As an educational leader, I must be responsible so that I am the catalyst for change.
  • I strive to reflect leadership skills that are based on servant leadership, organizational trust, and collaboration.
  • We must all provide a motivational framework for each learning opportunity.
  • All students should experience personal success in their educational experience. Effective educators must be lifelong learners and create that spirit within their students.
  • Regardless of a student’s background, schools must be continually responsive to changes in instructional practices and the learning needs of students.
  • All educators should provide an environment where children and families from different cultural backgrounds feel welcomed and accepted.
  • Children learn through support -- both in and out of the classroom.
  • Educators should always strive to move beyond the simple divulging of facts and knowledge and the training of certain skills; students must be able to see that adults care about them.
  • All educators are models for learning, for respectful and cooperative relationships, and for solving problems peacefully. A teacher’s attitude is a key ingredient to success.
