My Teaching Philosophy:



As an educator, I feel that it is my responsibility to determine each student’s strengths and weaknesses to build upon their prior knowledge and skill set. In this process, a teacher should discover a student’s personal interests to develop a meaningful connection between what they are learning in the classroom and their experiences in real life.  Also, I believe that a teacher is a student’s strongest advocate and should constantly strive to provide that student with not only the best education, but to be a positive role-model and guiding force for that student.  Being an influential teacher helps a student grow; not only academically, but mentally and emotionally in life.
