I believe in educating the whole child.
I believe that children learn through many different modalities.
I believe that all students should have equitable access to quality education.
I believe that children learn best in an atmosphere of trust, care and compassion.
I believe that curricula should highlight role models for all student groups within the school community.
I believe that facilitating student choice and student voice within the school community empowers children and helps to develop personal confidence and self-esteem.
I believe that I have a moral and professional obligation to carry out the tenets of my Education Credo, along with those of the District’s Mission and Vision.
