I want students to come to school excited about learning. I want them to feel safe, happy, and important. The students should know and understand the importance of following classroom rules and also having high academic expectations. I want them to respect each and every classmate and know that they all have many different talents to offer our class. The students should know that no one is perfect and they may make some mistakes. However, it's always important to give your best effort and your best attitude each and every day.
