After twenty-three years in education, the philosophy I embrace has been inspired by many educators, coaches, mentors, and leaders. The belief that all children can learn and be successful is a fundamental tenet.

The exciting recent changes in education allow equity and access for all students, across all communities in our country. The daily implementation of technology, innovation, and a growth mindset coupled with a caring, nurturing environment are essential for student growth.

As the need for mental health support and prevention increases, I believe we will see another shift in education, where social emotional learning is at the forefront.
