Christine Plett
Philosophy on Education
Education is the opportunity for students, teachers and parents to collaborate on the journey of being life-long learners. In order to achieve optimal learning experiences for each student, I must lead by example so that students consistently see a passion for learning reflected in me. One of the most valuable tools to equip students with is the self-assurance and ability to be independent and critical thinkers. By introducing the importance of problem solving, communication and selfdirection, the combination will result in students who are able to think for themselves, confident in their own opinions and decisions, and the motivation to pursue only the best for their future.

Key Strengths
Collaboration: Values and promotes creating and building lasting relationships with students and parents, between students, and with co-workers, as well as providing invaluable opportunities for professional development and innovation. Communication: Demonstrates importance and value of communication of thoughts and ideas through oral, written and visual mediums with the goal of promoting optimal learning and professional environments. Innovation: Through collaboration and communication, is open and willing to learn new and adapt past ideas or strategies that will contribute to the continued improvement of being an educator and life-long learner.
