As an educator he works hard to develop rapport with his students and teach and support them in all aspects of their learning, growth, and development.

His classroom is a safe, kind, and caring learning environment that emphasizes the importance of respect, effort, accountability, acceptance, leadership, teamwork, and citizenship.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
