Philosophy of Teaching:
A classroom should be full of a sense of community. Students should feel safe and comfortable in their school environment and trust their teacher. My responsibility as an educator is to prepare my students for the future and help them to succeed in their learning. I will make sure each of my students feel valued in the classroom and that they know their ideas are important to share. A classroom should be a place where every student is excited to participate. I know that God will always guide and support me in the present and in the future.
Create an environment for my students to feel safe to discuss their opinions and ideas without fear of judgement. Teach my students to become lifelong learners. Shape my students into the best possible versions of themselves and encourage them to become who they want to be. Teach my students that God has blessed them with the abilities that they possess and to understand that God is always there to guide them.
