PROFESSIONAL PROFILE As an educator I hope to provide students with a positive environment in which
they are inspired and motivated to grow as individuals through exploration, inquiring, and goal-setting. I
hope to teach in a way that recognizes and reaches the individual needs of students through differentiation
and multi-modal learning.
