BHMS Mission Statement
As a teacher at BHMS it is my mission to develop life-long learners and to stimulate the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical potential of every student. I believe in creating a challenging environment in which students can make a successful transition from elementary school to the demands of high school and beyond. I will foster the opportunity for each student to develop:
- A positive self image based on success in academic accomplishment and a maturing means of handling social and emotional issues;
- An understanding of their individual responsibilities in the school community and in a democratic society, in general;
- The ability to consider the rights and needs of others;
- A desire to preserve and maintain the environment which sustains life on Earth, as well as to contribute to a positive school and community environment;
- The interpersonal skills necessary to work productively in groups;
- Skills in critical and creative thinking, problem solving and decision making;
- An understanding of the relevance of academic disciplines to daily life;
- An appreciation of art, music and physical well being;
- The value of communicating ideas and beliefs clearly, accurately and appropriately.
Finally, one of my most important goals is to help my students become life long learners.
I look forward to working with you this year.
