    My Teaching Philosophies
    I believe that all students should be treated fairly.
    I believe all children deserve a quality education.
    I believe in getting to know all the different learning styles of my students so that lessons can be adapted accordingly.
    I believe that reading and writing are life-long skills, and they should be taught in ways that students can apply the strategies outside of the classroom.
    I believe that the needs of my students are my number one priority.
