Education is an endowment that can be given to everyone. Fill a person with education, and it cannot be taken away. Every student should have a chance to achieve to their ability. Students should be assessed fairly, and have a safe learning environment. In education it is important to teach students a method of inquiry. Students must learn to question their environment and the people in it. Students must have critical thinking skills in order to achieve their goals. I encourage students to ask questions of me and each other every day. I expect them to apply what we are studying to what is happening in their life.
I love to cook, and many times my students are treated to my goodies. I am a reader especially mystery novels. My family is Forest, my husband, Lee, my son, Barbara, my daughter and Austin, Dillon, and Logan, my grandchildren.
