Philosophy: To teach from the heart with a strong arm. To show students who thought they can’t they can. To teach character, integrity, responsibility and hard work first, and the skills second. With the first, the second will always come out stronger. To provide a safe, fun and loving teaching environment where students have the freedom to explore learning yet always know the responsibility falls upon them to take what is taught, use it and succeed. Raise your expectations and students will reach them.
Definition of Success: When one doesn’t settle for who he is, but through hard work, dedication and discipline, becomes all they can be.
