    My Educational Philosophy

    Having an education means a student is prepared academically, socially, and cognitively for the next stage of their life. This preparation includes practice and mastery of skills common to all areas of study: communication, critical thinking, and analysis. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to teach all students in my classroom and to do so fairly. It is my duty to plan, prepare, monitor, and assess learning outcomes while maintaining a positive, physically and socially safe, and engaging environment.
