Welcome to Ms. Capers' Homepage
As an educator, I believe my first responsibility is to build a child’s self-confidence.
Children should learn early in life that mistakes are not signs of failure but signs of
learning. I first came to Erwin as a teacher assistant in 2006 and continued as a
classroom teacher in 2016. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to support
children in becoming life-long learners of self. It is the educators’ role to guide
children in understanding that learning is not a race or competition with another
but rather an opportunity to be amazed at your own brilliance. Therefore, it is my
daily responsibility to challenge children to push beyond any limiting thoughts or
small ideas they have about themselves. As adults, we must build in each child the
knowing that real super-heroes are not on the TV screen but in the mirror.
