It is my responsibility to positively promote education; to provide insight, knowledge, discernment, and wisdom within individuals as they become lifelong learners full of compassion, humility, self confidence and enthusiasm. Throughout the year, I want each student to learn to take risks, to grow through their mistakes, and to recognize his/her full potential through the use of collaboration, problem solving, accountability, responsibility, assessment , and reflection while using critical thinking skills, problem solving skills, communication skills , collaboration, creativity and innovation. Developing these skills is essential for the growth, prosperity, and conscientious decision making necessary for the 21st century and beyond.- Mr. Stracco

These skills will be mastered through individual and group experiences.
