1 Welcome to Middle School

2 The use of Knowledge is wisdom… “ Wisdom is supreme: therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her (wisdom), and she will exalt you: embrace her, and she will honor you ”

3 My Teaching Philosophy I believe that each day is what we make it. I believe stumbling blocks can become stepping-stones allowing us to step above our circumstances. History is filled with many that accomplished the impossible only because they believed in themselves. Each person, each student, YOU are worth my time and effort in helping YOU be successful.
