Teaching Philosophy:
"Every student that has the need and the want will succeed with the right direction." (I didn't steal this quote, it's my own!)
It is my belief that all students can and will have success in my room. It takes determination and motivation to discover each student's potential. This is a collaborative effort between teachers, administrators, parents, guardians, coaches and any other person who can have a positive influence on the student. "It takes a community!"
 
Coaching Philosophy:
"Accountability and hard work are the cornerstones to a successful team." It is my belief that all athletes are students first and athletes second. There is a collaborative effort between teachers and coaches to ensure that all students are prepared for life outside of the classroom. I feel as though making students/athletes accountable will ensure success for all and help athletes coop for struggles of life. Overcoming these struggles and working with others is a skill all athletes/students will use the rest of their life. "It takes a community!"
