• My philosophy of education is based on the belief that learners have the power within themselves to reach the next level in their education. My aim as a teacher is to empower, coach, inspire and guide learners to the final level on their 6th-grade social studies journey. I love being a guiding force to help mold learners into knowledgeable and functional global citizens.  As a first-year teacher, It's my goal to build and maintain a positive connection and partnership with my classroom learners. I am new to Mcdonough Middle School, and I am excited to begin my career in education at this school. I've chosen to become a part of this school community because knowledge transfer is rewarding and scary as it passes from educator to learner. I want to help the learners when they feel like they want to give up on their journeys. I have a desire to inspire learners by bringing my real-world experiences into the classroom. I will impact the learner's lives by creating an environment in the 6th-grade social studies classroom that will introduce the learners to the world around them. I love learning and exploring with my new learners.  It's my passion to help learners become inspired to want to go into the world to make it better for future generations to come.
