What are your most important teaching goals for the children in your class?
My main goal as a teacher is for each child to feel special and successful in everything they do.

There is a lot I love about my job. I love seeing a child light up when they learn or try something new. Seeing children feel confident about themselves is very rewarding. Nothing warms your heart like seeing smiles on those little faces!
