I passionately believe that all children can learn and have the right to a quality and engaging education. Students learn best when they are in an encouraging supportive environment; when they can connect new information to things they already know; when they are allowed to be creative and make choices about activities and assignments; when parents are involved in their education; when they can connect with positive adults. Focusing on the whole child, while imposing high expectations and utilizing evidence-based practices, results in successful schools like Hamilton. Student learning improves when you raise expectations, support teachers, and build a collaborative climate that is focused on learning and progress for all that are part of the school community.
