Teaching Philosophy:
I believe that my job as a teacher is to not just give facts or information that students need to know.  My job as a teacher is to guide students to knowledge, foster confidence so students will ask questions, and provide the necessary tools needed for students to find the answers.

Martin Luther King has said, "Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education."  I believe this to be 100% true.  Therefore, it is my job not only to provide some of the knowledge that will help my students gain this intelligence, but also to model a high standard of character. My standard of character will include kindness, compassion, imagination, discipline, and humor. I have found that with kindness and humor much can be achieved.

“The principal goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done. “

Jean Piaget (1896-1980) Swiss cognitive psychologist.

 
Let's have a GREAT year!!!
