My Teaching Philosophy

I believe that students should be given many opportunities to learn. In addition, students should have some choice in their learning. They should be able to learn through contribution to a larger project with the ability to reflect on what was learned throughout the process. While it is important to provide students with content, the ability to develop skills that can carry over to other areas in life is essential. In order for students to get the most out of the educational process, they must be developing skills along with the basic content knowledge.

Building Block Spotlight: Personal Mindset

When students are aware of their personal mindset, they are able to foster changes in their development and interests.
