West Main Elementary
As a teacher, my responsibilities are many; I will help your child continue the process of learning. Your child will be encouraged to learn and flourish in a safe and dynamic educational environment. They will have the freedom to experiment, explore, seek and question. They will fail and succeed without fear. In this way, they will learn to trust and interact with other children as well as adults.
I promise to provide stimulating educational experiences. I will do my best to make sure each student develops academically, socially, and emotionally. Each child is unique and will work at its own pace. The classroom environment will be structured so that children can achieve their highest potential.
The future of our society depends on the education of its young. I accept this responsibility with great commitment, dedication and joy.
