  • Issues I care about: I care about teacher retention, recruitment, and training. I strive to provide students with resources and differentiated instruction to meet their individual needs.

My teaching philosophy premises around the No Child Left Behind Act. Transforming the role in education to meet the learning needs of all students was the mission of the No Child Left Behind Act. My purpose is to strengthen efforts to close the achievement gap, provide flexibility to better measure individual student progress, prepare high school students for success by promoting rigorous and advanced coursework, provide greater resources for teachers to improve reading, math, and science instruction, reward progress for challenging environments, and provide tools to help underperforming schools (ed. Gov, 2007). As reported by the Secretary of Education, students and their schools must be challenged to succeed. We must work to guarantee a meaningful diploma to every graduate. A diploma must signify the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in college and in the competitive marketplace (ed.gov, 2007, p.1). As a life -long learner and educator, my vision is to prepare students to fulfill our positions in the future.
