Every year, students entering a new class have much anxiety; maybe students don't know what to expect. I want students to know that they do not have to be anxious. My students' achievements are my achievements. I truly believe that education is collaborative; it takes the teacher, student(s), and family for all facets of learning to succeed. A student should not work harder than the teacher. The teacher should not work harder than the student. Therefore, equal responsibility must be shared to ensure continued success.
Students fully immersed in my classroom should have an enjoyable and enriching learning experience. Success begins with hard work, dedication, commitment, and most importantly, responsibility. Sure, there will be times students may stumble, but please never hesitate to ask for help or clarification. I wish all students the best in their semester with me!
