    My Education and Professional Background

    My Educational Philosophy

    My Educational Philosophy can be summarized through the words of many great thinkers: • “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” –Benjamin Franklin • “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” –Albert Einstein • “The art of teaching [science] is the art of assisting discovery.” –Mark Van Doren • “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” –Carl W. Buehner • “Good schools, like good societies and good families, celebrate and cherish diversity.” –Deborah Meier • The Four C’s of 21st Century Education are Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. • “Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.” –John Dana • “Teachers have three loves: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together.” –Scott Hayden
