Teaching Philosophy

Learning is a life long process.
I believe that learning takes place when a person is faced with a challenge. It is when that challenge is overcome that the individual has learned something from it. Teaching the students critical thinking skills and problem solving will not only help them in school but elsewhere through life. I believe that the students need to know how to dissect a problem and approach it from many different ways. Students are like a piece of clay that needs to be continually molded. I believe it is very important to instill authenticity in learning. We need to not only make learning exciting but also make it meaningful to the student. If the student sees how the lesson being taught relates to other aspects in his or her life it will promote better learning.
