My Philosophy

scene from Alice in Wonderland

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said. “One can’t believe impossible things.” 
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Alice in Wonderland

My Philosophy

Children with learning challenges often feel like Alice, believing that changing how they  think and learn is impossible.  As a result, they may feel forever stuck in an often incomprehensible land.  I help them to imagine the impossible and achieve it.

My practice focuses on the student's emotional, psychological, and  academic well-being with an emphasis on steady progress and finding a way out of the rabbit hole. 

 

I Believe:

Ability is what a student is capable of achieving.

Motivation determines what that child can do.

Attitude determines how well it can be done.

Learning can be joyful, playful, and exciting

Understanding how we think helps us to create successful strategies for living and learning. 

 

My Goals:

To cultivate a sense excitement and joy in the learning process that invites and motivates children

To maximize the child's ability to negotiate successfully in both the academic and social environment.

To help students to recognize and celebrate their learning differences and see them as strengths rather than weaknesses

To develop strategies that guide students towards becoming self-regulated and self-reflective learners.

To promote a powerful self-advocacy that encourages them to effectively articulate their existing skills and challenges

To support students in building strong academic abilities


 

Together we can change IMPOSSIBLE to I'M POSSIBLE
