Bachelor of Arts in Middle Childhood Education

Philosophy
My goal as an educator is to motivate my students to never give up when the going gets tough!  I believe that each child has different God given talents and abilities that can be used to help them reach their full potential.  I strive to cater to their differences daily by challenging, encouraging, engaging, and energizing my students through my instruction.  Regardless of any obstacles that may arise, my job is to respond accordingly to support their success!

I’m blessed to be a part of a community that is as welcoming and supportive as MDA!  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with an outstanding group of faculty, staff, students, and their families to enhance the success of everyone.

Philosophy

Students need a learning environment that not only meets their needs but encourages success by exceeding their expectations.  They need teachers who strive daily to help them grow in ways they never thought possible.  My job is never done until I see the “light bulb” come on indicating success has been achieved.

I love the atmosphere and friendliness of the parents, students, faculty and staff that is displayed at MDA.  It’s a caring environment that demonstrates Catholic values.

Philosophy

I believe every child has a right to a safe place to explore, discover and learn. Education should be all-encompassing developing students academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. School staff and parents must work hand in hand to ensure our students reach their full-potential.

I love that MDA offers a supportive, engaging environment where staff and students work together to make positive change in the world.
