My teaching philosophy can best be described in this quote:
"I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.  It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous.  I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.  I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.  In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized."  ~ Dr. Haim Ginott.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to work with your children.
