My Educational Philosophy
When it comes to learning a language, you need to let your guard down, embrace mistakes and keep on moving forward! In a school setting, an important piece of this is to encourage your peers as well. I'm hoping you learn to trust the process and step back often to look at the progress you've been making, because the payoff is big!
