Ms. Vandana Gupta
My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help a child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively, and learning through play. It is my goal to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and having fun. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in school to real-life situations. I want my students to feel challenged and to have an enhanced passion for learning. On the same note I would like to say that collaboration, cooperation, and open communication between home and school are keys to building a strong foundation for a child's academic foundation and professional career. I sincerely believe that this will lead into building a successful community .
