My teaching philosophy revolves around my desire to teach and that of life long learning. My
belief is that you aren’t taught to be a teacher, but you are born into it. It’s a passion and desire
one has to have to educate. Teaching is about making a difference in the lives of each and every
child. I challenge students and watch them grow to their full potential. I want to take students at
different levels and see them develop together for the betterment of each individual and the
Students should be able to experiment with likes and dislikes and to realize their
strengths and weaknesses. After this base is developed, the curriculum can be molded to tie in
each student’s learning style. Sometimes it can be a struggle, but if something goes wrong, there
is always a way to fix the problem. No matter what, there is always the power to make change.
The iLearn Teacher of the Year Program honors excellence in classroom education and provides a forum to showcase many outstanding educators whose efforts and example have inspired their students, their colleagues, and the communities they serve.
iLearn Schools Teacher of the Year is the highest honor that iLearn Schools can bestow upon a teacher. This program annually recognizes and rewards teachers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and excellence in teaching.
Every spring each campus selects a Teacher of the Year and amongst them, one iLearn Schools Teacher of the Year is selected. The one teacher that is selected as the iLearn Schools Teacher of the Year represents iLearn Schools in the Governor’s Teacher of the Year and the New Jersey Charter School Association Teacher of the Year programs.
