*My Educational Philosophy

 

*      Students are not members of a school of fish, all going in the same direction but headed in their own direction like the graceful dolphin. 

*      I think that same core classes should be required of all. 

*      Students should also have a knowledge of how the world works, specifically government. 

*      The electives in a school should be varied.  It would be beneficial for students to be able to build upon their own interests, such as creative writing, sports, carpentry, etc.

*      Curriculum content should include room for changes.  Our world is in a constant state of transition. 

*      We need to educate our students to be ready for the world, regardless of how they choose to face it upon graduation. 

*      Curriculum should also be relevant to student needs and selected based on student interest. 

*      While students are exploring their curriculum, a teacher should be there to guide the student in the right direction

*      A teacher needs to find a way to extrinsically motivate a student to intrinsically motivate his or herself.  Students need to be taught to teach themselves.

*      Students do not all learn in the same time, manner, or with the same adaptations.  This is something that must be considered by teachers

*      Discipline should be consistent throughout the school year.
