Philosophy of education
I believe that all students are capable of learning. As an educator it is up to me to find the tools to teach them. All children are unique individuals who need a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment...
- The teacher acting as a guide
- Allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning
- Promoting respect for all things and all people
