Professional Philosophy of Education
I believe teaching is about establishing and maintaining relationships. I feel that when students trust you and understand that you want the best for them, they are more willing to do their best for you. I believe that teaching is about making your classroom an enjoyable place, but also a place of expectations where serious work and effort are put forth. I want my students to understand the correlation between working hard, and success. I want them to experience the joy and pride that comes from the often arduous process that produces a meaningful final product. Finally, I understand the importance of instilling self confidence in students. I want my students to leave my class with a confidence that allows them to recognize their potential.
