My Educational Philosophy

Each learner brings unique gifts to the classroom. It is the job of the classroom teacher to provide multiple opportunities for students to discover their gifts and use them both now and in the future. Learning specific facts is less important than learning how to access information and use it to meet needs and solve problems. The best learning comes from experience. I cannot make anyone learn, but I can create an environment where learners can become inquisitive, self-directed, thoughtful, and educated people.
