My mission is to empower my 6th grade students to become lifelong learners and responsible caring citizens. I have high expectations and require hard work and dedication from all my students so they can perform at their highest potential. By modeling STAR behavior, collaborating with classroom peers, and successfully working in learning teams, your student can reach his/her academic and social goals! Please make each day count. WE have to define who we are or the world will define us.
