I believe teaching is a complex thinking profession worthy of respect and admiration.
I believe that teachers and staff have a responsibility to be inquisitive, creative, passionate, concerned and risk takers.
I believe my role is to provide continuous feedback based on observations, conversations and noticings in order to ensure we all rise to the next level for the sake of our children. I lead by example.
I believe that we can either make that happen or remove all possibilities.
I believe all grades are responsible in making learning increasingly challenging and meaningful.
I believe we all take a turn in placing each child on a step closer to success.
Proud Principal PS/IS 18
