Parents and Families,
Before anything else I want you to know that you and your family’s health and personal well-being are far more important to me than schoolwork. However, a routine involving schoolwork may help with any anxiety your student might be feeling. Please take care of each other and find a balance that works for you and your family. With that being said, please check the assignment tab located on the left for work that your scholar may complete during this perplexing time.
Degrees and Certifications:
Hampton University: B.S., M.B.A.
Position: 7th Grade Math
I believe that every child is unique. Providing guidance and support can foster each scholar's special gift so that they make a difference in themselves and our world. My educational philosophy focuses on this concept so, my curriculum is developed to differentiate for a diverse scholar population in an effort to empower scholars to take responsibility for their own learning. I feel that children need the following basic needs from their teacher and school community and they are; support, safe and positive school and classroom environment, understanding of their particular needs, and a variety of opportunities to learn by incorporating the multiple intelligences and learning styles of each and every scholar. As a teacher, my goal is to create learners who have self-efficacy and self-esteem. This will provide the platform that allows every scholar to discover a passion for learning, embrace the process of the mathematical concepts, and allow scholars to confidently collaborate with peers with the hope of creating great communicators that will teach the next generation the world of Math!
