"The principle goal of education is to create men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done."
~ Jean Piaget
My Teaching Philosophy
We as educators are entrusted with the responsibility of educating our youth. A responsibility that is indeed noble and challenging. I believe that students learn best when a relationship of trust and respect is established. Positive student teacher relationships encourage students to take risks and ask questions. Without a nurturing, trusting and respectful relationship, student learning is severely impeded. When students ask questions, thats when learning happens. Teaching is about instilling student agency and a love of learning that will ensure students are prepared to achieve success in college and careers.
