Teaching Philosophy

Teaching, for me, is not a profession; it is a Mission, a lifelong process where all together we learn new strategies, new ideas, and new philosophies. As I circulate around the classroom to monitor group activities and facilitate as groups share with the class the key points of their discussions, I am no longer surprised that I, too, learn through these interactions, about different perspectives and about the students themselves. This is an aspect of teaching that I enjoy and find particularly rewarding. My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Listening to the small-group discussions in class provides an opportunity for me to monitor comprehension, to provide formative feedback and to interact more closely with students. I believe that a classroom should be a safe, caring community where children are free to speak their mind and blossom and grow!
