Teaching Philosophy

Sometimes I am a coach; sometimes a cheerleader
Sometimes I am a sage; sometimes a clown
Sometimes I am an actor; sometimes a critic
Sometimes I am a preacher; sometimes a listener.

Society entrusts me with its most precious asset:
The minds of the next generation
I am a teacher
I honor my students
I respect what they ask of me
That I join them on the journey towards becoming
Well-educated members of our community.
