Welcome to Mrs. La Fuente's Page

As an educator we do more than simply teach. We are constantly evolving as teachers, learners, and as humans. I firmly believe that if I am not learning alongside my students I am failing myself, as well as my students. I have a student-centered philosophy on education. Students should feel encouraged to ask questions, and explore their own education using the form of learning that works best for them. I believe that students should be active learners in their learning community, and have a voice as to how they learn. I will strive daily to meet my students on their educational level and build upon what they already know in order to get them to the next level of success. I believe every level of success should be valued and is important. I want my students to realize that as long as they apply themselves, they can reach any level of success.
