Students First! My teaching philosophy is simple, my kids come first. I want my kids to know I care about them as an individual and as a learner. I want my kids to be engaged and involved in their learning no matter the subject. As well, I try to bring a bit of fun and humor into my classroom. They may not always get my jokes or find them punny ;), but I try because I love what I do and I love working at “The Grove”.
