Personal Philosophy
"If we are unaware of our ignorances, 
we will be mislead by our knowledge."


Educational Philosophy

Each child is unique and has special talents and abilities.

My job is to provide experiences through which these talents can be enhanced and refined.

In addition, I strive to provide an atmosphere in which new talents will be acquired and encouraged.


Program Philosophy

The program aims to develop personal accountability for their learning in each student.

Emphasis is on the quality of the work rather than the quantity.

Students explore their areas of interest and present findings in their unique ways.

With this approach, I hope to provide the optimum learning environment for each child.
