My Educational Philosophy
I believe education is a pivotal driver of change, advancement, and equality in society. The role of a teacher is to use classroom instruction and presentations to help students learn and apply concepts in all subject areas. Students learn best in a warm and supportive environment where they feel the teacher truly cares about them and their success. A teacher's primary goals are to help students figure out who they are and how they can be of service to their community. An effective teacher needs to have a basic sociocultural awareness of and acceptance of their own and others' cultural identities. I certainly believe that each student can learn; the key is understanding what educational methods work best for each student and then catering instruction to each student's individual needs. I have a passion for my students and their learning. I am a life long learner myself therefore, my passion and love for my students as my own works well with our goals in class.
