Educational Philosophy

Every individual is born with the capacity to learn great things. It is the responsibility of educators to utilize their expertise and provide their pupils with the knowledge and information necessary for them to succeed. Furthermore, it is the pupils' responsibility to take advantage of every experience and opportunity afforded to them to expand their knowledge and intelligence. So much can be learned from life experiences, but the foundation of those experiences can be taught by great educators who are experts in their fields.


Sheril Roberts' professional background is in social work. She has worked as a Child Protective Services social worker and a Qualified Mental Health Professional; however, education has always been her passion.
