My Core Values
My educational philosophy is
UNLESS SOMEONE LIKE YOU CARES A WHOLE AWFUL LOT,
During my past thirty-plus years of educational training, professional work, community involvement and my parenting experience, I have fostered some core values for education. I have applied these core values as principles for my professional and community education services. These core values will also help guide my school committee actions.
EVERY child is special and has his/her unique development path.
EVERY child is curious and interested in learning and growing.
EVERY child has potential to be successful and productive.
EVERY child is entitled to a safe and caring environment.
PARENTS are their child’s first and primary teachers and caretakers.
SCHOOLS provide a child’s most influential learning environment.
TEACHERS play a key role in their students" intellectual development.
COMMUNITY should work together to strive for educational excellence to raise our children.
UNDERSTANDING a child’s unique learning styles/needs
INTEGRATED intellectual, personal and social development
SUSTAINABLE achievement for a child’s learning and growth
PROACTIVE involvement in all aspects of children’s learning and growth activities
I FOCUS ON C-A-R-E:
Communication—meaningful interaction with our children, schools, and communities
Appreciation—empathetic understanding and enjoying the strength of our children, families, schools, and communities
Responsibility—striving for a supportive environment for quality education of our children, students, and communities
Enjoyment—ensuring a happy and healthy learning and growing path for our children and students
“WE CARE means appreciation and celebration of a whole child.”
