Mrs. Whitcomb‘s Educational Philosophy:
”I believe all students have the ability to learn. It is my job to help them achieve all that they are capable of. Students come to me from many different cultures and backgrounds and they learn in different ways. I get to know each of my students and learn their unique styles and plan my lessons to meet each of their needs. I like to have open communication with the parents of my students so that we can work together to help their child achieve.”
