Philosophy of Education
Children as Stewards of Human and Natural Communities
"Each child represents a clean slate for the direction of stewardship; to encourage thriving communities already in place or to develop new ways to care for our world. As a teacher, I feel that it is my responsibility to pass on the tradition of caring and knowledge to a new generation as well as empowering them to make positive changes for their future."
As an Educator
"I have been awarded many diverse opportunities to develop the skills that make me an effective educator. These different jobs and life experiences directly affected my professional teaching skills as well as developed personal traits that allow me to connect with my students on various levels. "
Significant Learning Experiences
"All of these experiences proved to me that the empowerment of people is fueled by their local knowledge of the environment and a supportive community."
