Hello Students and Families,
 
Welcome to my KHS website!! I am so excited about the opportunity to get to know you, I'm looking forward to all that's to come!!!
 
As a secondary educator, I strongly believe that fostering critical thinking skills is at the heart of what we do in education. I am committed to giving students the tools they need to see their own value, analyze information and situations, and effectively solve problems. I will be using case studies, real-life examples, and thought-provoking questions, I encourage students to consider their role and how they fit in society. I believe in making science concepts tangible and relative through dissections, virtual lab exploration, collaborative discussion, and other interactive learning tools. Although I am committed to teaching the core educational requirements for each age group and providing the feedback that comes with grading, I want to go beyond standardized assessments and create a sense of leadership and capability in my students as citizens of the community. I see my role as not only providing answers but encouraging students to ask important questions. I prioritize my relationship with them and model the behaviors I want to see in students through good communication and a genuine interest in understanding other perspectives.
