There is something truly special about our job:
“Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." –Marva Collins
It frightens some, it is exciting to others.
Like most of you, we are here because we want to be the best teacher that we can be, to provide our students with the highest quality foundation for their educational career.
Our students come to school ready to learn, full of innocence, joy and wonder. It is our role as their teacher to incorporate this love of learning into our teaching practice. We believe that all students should have access to a high quality education through developmentally appropriate programs that foster this love of learning in a meaningful and engaging way.
