SIXTH GRADE LANGUAGE ARTS
My main educational philosophy is that all children can learn if they work hard, are willing to take risks, and believe that learning from failures is a huge part of our growth as human beings. I also believe that academics will be more successful if students possess five character traits: perseverance, grit, optimism, conscientiousness, and self-control. Recent research has shown that these five traits are a more accurate indicator for life-long success than any cognitive skill! It is my goal to create an environment where ALL students can access their potential successes both academically and personally. Our classroom is structured, yet flexible. I believe all children can and will learn, but not all in the same way or at the same rate. AND THAT’S OK! I do my best to meet each student at their level and interest and help move them forward in their life journey.
