I value respect, innovation, accountability and accessibility. How does this translate into our lessons? I respect where your child is currently at academically and respect their abilities and your expectations as their parent as to where you/they want their learning path to go and ultimately what you want for your child to be a success. Success can be defined differently for each child. Only your child matters with individual instruction. Your child will receive a truly individualized lesson plan daily that is innovative and in tune with your child’s learning objectives. I will be accessible for additional instruction and assistance during the days and times posted on this website. Accountability is achieved by determining clear milestones and objectives and providing parents with regular feedback as to how their child is progressing on their learning path.
I value a partnership between student, school, family and community. Each of these are crucial influences in a child’s life and EACH must be a part of a child’s learning programme in order for the child to be a success intellectually, emotionally, psychologically and ultimately a happy, valued and appreciated part of each of the above-mentioned communities.
I value learning environments that are safe, nurturing, positive and respectful
