My educational philosophy is to motivate every student to learn mathematics in their own way. Many students have animosity towards mathematics, where they feel they cannot learn the subject or cannot see the application in different disciplines. I want to inspire and motivate students in their own independent learning of mathematics in order to build their self confidence in the subject.

What I love about teaching mathematics is the diversity in the subject. I want to teach mathematics in a tangible way by providing various learning styles and incorporating technology. I believe it is important to teach mathematics in a very concrete, tactile way where students are able to use manipulatives to first understand the concept, then move to more abstract mathematics where students use their critical thinking skills to find a result.

I want to create a safe learning environment where students feel safe to share their ideas, without being criticized. In providing this environment, students will become leaders in their own learning by participating in the lesson and using their learning style in using different strategies to various mathematical concepts. I also want my students to be able to use their leadership skills to be able to help other students in order to strengthen their own knowledge and build community in the classroom.

Overall, I want to see my future students succeed in any of their endeavors whether it be continuing in higher education, joining the military, or starting the work force without the fear of mathematics hindering them. Through teaching mathematics in various styles, I hope for students to see mathematics as more then memorization and formulas, and build the appropriate critical thinking skills that they can apply in other subjects and disciplines they may face.
