What makes Summer@Latin special?  

My favorite thing about Summer@Latin is the many ways in which we are able to continue educating, learning and exploring while using various outdoor spaces to continue learning over the summer.

What are your guiding principles?

My guiding principles are:

  1. Every child is unique and we can all learn something new from each other.
  2. Everyone learns differently and teachers may need to adapt or alter their lessons accordingly.
  3. Teaching children about community and how to be useful outside of the classroom is essential.
  4. Always put yourself in someone else's shoes--we can always learn from another person's experiences.

"I believe summer allows children and youth opportunities for learning new skills and making new friends."
