high level math
I believe that all students should be taught by qualified teachers who have high expectations for and believe in their students.
support for students
I believe that educators should provide students with support, accommodation and remediation that may be necessary.
culturally relevant pedagogy
I believe that all students should receive instruction that connects to their backgrounds, experiences, cultural perspectives, and traditions.
asset based teaching
I acknowledge that there are factors that lead to different outcomes for certain populations of students and we seek to address them.
Education law & policy
I advocate for federal and state laws and policies that promote equity for all stakeholders, including families, students, and educators based on our core values and goals.
