Philosophy of Education
As a teacher, I believe in focusing the curriculum around the whole class individually. I feel it is my responsibility to find strategies that are engaging and purposeful to teach the students. The strategies will help to build the students self confidence and promote their individual strengths. A variety of educational resources will be provided within the classroom to expand my students learning experiences. Cooperative learning is also an effective tool to build a respectful community. The environment will be one where the students feel safe and comfortable when working together. I am not only focusing on the development of academic skills, but social and personal skills as well.
I think it is important to build a relationship between the parents and the teacher. As a teacher I will encourage my students’ parents to play an active role in developing their child’s educational skills at home. My goal, through the cooperation of all parties, is to find an avenue through which each student can learn to the most of their ability.
