STATEMENT OF TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
My philosophy of education is that all students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.
It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe engaging environment where students are invited to share their ideas and take risks.
I believe that there are four essential elements that are conducive to learning.
(1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide.
(2) Students must have access to hands-on activities.
(3) Students should be able to have choices
(4) Students need examples of real-world experience.
I am very passionate about the opportunity to educate and mentor students. By seeking feedback from students and continually improving my teaching style, I hope to be able to effectively empower students and provide guidance and assistance through a creative balance of academic and professional experiences.
