I believe

I believe respect, understanding, and kindness is the backbone to a successful classroom.

I believe all students should have equal opportunities to learn and to be challenged with their knowledge

I believe all students need to be respected

I believe teachers are roll models and can be the best part of a child’s day

I believe there is more to learning than receiving a good grade. Students should be given continuous opportunity to display their efforts, strengths and improvements.

I believe that schools should be a safe space for all children and families – a place where silenced communities can be heard and respected

I believe teachers need to be willing to continue learning throughout their career
