As a practicing educator, I believe the following core values employ principles that CREATE effective change.

Community - All stakeholders are members and play an important role in the success of an organization.

Respect - All voices within the community must be heard and, while perspectives and views may differ, received with dignity.

Equity - All groups and individuals are valued and have a place in the community.

Advocacy - The rights of all members within the community deserve to be fought for.

Teamwork - We must work together for the common good of the community.

Experiences - All members within the community deserve inspirational experiences that promote growth and achievement.
