"What I like most about my classroom
is whom I share it with!" 
I believe that...
Every child can learn and has the potential to succeed.
Every student is an individual and has their own learning style.
Every student should be assessed in a way that allows them to best express their abilities.
Learning should be student centered.
Learning should be authentic and interdisciplinary.
Learning should be interactive, engaging, and creative.
The classroom climate is set by the teacher's attitude.
The classroom creates a family of learners, working together.
The classroom should be a safe, inviting, and stimulating environment.
Teachers are only part of a team.
Teachers should have high expectations.
Teachers should be role-models for their students, both in and out of the classroom.
Teachers must go above and beyond their teaching duties.
Teachers should be involved with extra-curricular activities.
Teachers must be adaptable, constantly evaluating their teaching practices and seeking to improve their methods.
Teachers should be working with students, parents, colleagues, administrators, and community members.

Homework is SUPER important, so here are some        
great homework tips that will help bring up those grades!
 1.  Do your homework right after school.  This way it is done, and you can enjoy the rest of your night.
2.  Get rid of any distractions.  Shut off the tv and radio so you can concentrate on what's most important.
3.  Do your homework at the kitchen or dining room table or at a desk if you have one.  This will help you get rid of any temptations like playing video games or talking on the phone. 
4.  Get yourself settled first.  Have all of your books, paper, pencils, and pens where you need them.  Get yourself a glass of water and a snack, and keep it close.  Go to the bathroom first.  This way there will be no excuse to get up and waste time.
5.  Instead of cramming for a test the night before,  study for 15 minutes every night leading up to the big test.  You won't feel as nervous, and you'll remember a lot more.
