Educational Philosophy-- I believe that each student is a unique individual that is capable of learning and has a specific style of learning. As they process experiences and information, teachers need to identify and tailor instruction techniques accordingly. I allow students to make decisions and be responsible in creating their own classroom expereinces. I hope that as a teacher my role would be one of instilling the desire for students to motivate themselves and become self initiated learners. I would guide and direct them to resources that we can do together and individually. I would like to have items of interest int he classroom for students to want to pick up and study on their own--- out of curiosity of the subject. The students would then discuss and really think about the meaning of what they are doing. They would be expected to articulate decisions and their thought process of how they came about making decisions regardless on the subject. I want to educate and broaden the "whole person", socially, emotionally, and academically.
