The students are expected to stretch themselves academically and socially.
Each child will begin this school year in a unique place. This starting
point, no matter where it is, is perfect and acceptable. Over the course of
the year, progress will be made. Our class mission is to continually strive
for personal improvement and to be of service to others throughout our
In order for our children to take risks, it is essential that they feel
safe. Happy children learn. Therefore, it is critical that we bring our
best attitude and behavior with us each day. A positive environment is the
foundation for all success in the classroom.
As an educator, I am committed to being warm and caring while still demanding
quality effort socially, behaviorally, and academically. I promise to be
consistent and fair with consequences in order to provide a safe, predictable
environment with a solid foundation for learning.
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher:
the tools she used were books and music and art;
One was a parent
With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.
And when at last their work was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought!
And each agreed she would have failed
if she had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home!
