“My goal as a teacher and administrator remains steadfast: to ensure that each child builds a strong sense of self-efficacy. Our Winnetka community offers a rich learning environment to help achieve this goal. Our child-centered philosophy--offering challenge, meaningful learning experiences and adults who care--helps develop thoughtful, resilient and confident young learners.”
