It is my personal belief that attitude and spirit are the driving forces in developing children into responsible adults. It is my job as an educator to promote an environment that promotes integrity and a spirit of cooperation with student success at the forefront. Failure is an option sometimes but will always be used as a learning opportunity for students, parents and teachers. I chose to be in the kid business because I personally feel that the total development of a child is the most important occupation on the planet. I pledge to always value the children and staff under my direction and to this end I will lead by example all the while being positive and caring. Education is a process that involves everyone playing a role and I am excited that I get to assist in this awesome journey.
