Personal Philosophy Statement
As a teacher, I want my students to know that God loves them, is always there for them, and that they can always turn to God. I hope to inspire children to learn, to wonder, to love one another like Jesus loves us, and to live in peace with each other. If I can do that, I will feel that I have reached my goal! Each child is a unique gift from God, and I will love them for the child they are!
