Our Director's commitment to students, parents, and the community is demonstrated in her passion for the classroom. She understands that no two students enter a classroom with identical abilities, experiences, or needs. Culture, language proficiency, background knowledge, learning style, readiness to learn, and other dynamics can vary widely.

Her experience teaching differentiated and direct instruction takes each student’s unique goals, interests, and needs into account, creating effective instruction and activities to accommodate them.
