As an educator, I hope to foster a sense of wonder, creativity, and academic excellence in my students. Fifth and sixth grade humanities presents the opportunity to immerse in greats works of literature, explore the ancient and medieval world, and try a variety of writing forms. I acknowledge that everything we do in class will not always fit individual tastes, but I expect my students to try everything with an open mind and an open heart. As we work and grow together in class, I will continually raise the bar in an effort to push my students to their individual limits. My hope is that every one of my students is inspired to take a piece of what they have learned together and make a positive difference in the world at large.
