Philosophy of Education:

My philosophy of education is every student can learn when we create an environment that allows for meaningful and realistic instruction. I believe that learner-centered teaching promotes learning that is both purposeful and enduring. As a teacher, it was my responsibility to know who my students were, what kind of knowledge and experience they brought to school, and finally what they wanted to accomplish so that I could tailor my instruction to fit their needs.  As an administrator, the above also applies.  I also believe that teachers who demonstrate curiosity and passion about a subject area motivate students to learn.

Family:

Married to Tony Allen with four incredible children. Noemi, Leah, Fernando, and Ezael. We also have 2 boxers, Cain and Sky.
