Mission Statement and Teaching Philosophy

Mission Statement

With my guidance, students will explore the richness of social studies to gain a better understanding of the people that inhabit their world.

Teaching Philosophy

It is my duty as a teacher to prepare students for adulthood by:

• Equipping them with the knowledge that they will use to become good citizens;

• Fostering their intellectual curiosity to search for new information;

• Guiding them through pathways of cultural understanding; and,

• Encouraging them to develop their own understandings of their world.
