My Educational Philosophy
I feel that students must be allowed to think critically and creatively with time for self-reflection, so in turn, they will enjoy the learning process. Every student is an individual, and it is my goal to get to know their own personal needs to help them grow and achieve. I think reading is a great way to grow as a learner. "Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body."
