My philosophy for teaching is to instill wisdom, values, morals, and norms about everyday life as well as knowledge. Marian Wright Edelman, an activist, said, “education is improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” As an educator, I completely agree with this quote. My plans are to assist my students in pushing them to develop their own individual’s life, but If I can help by changing one life, I come in contact with, then my mission is accomplished. Each child is different, but they all seek love. I plan on providing this love through my teachings and life experiences. I stride to connect to my students on all levels, emotionally, mentally, intellectually, and socially. I want to build a foundation with students to help them reach their fullest potential by including family involvement. I will present learning curriculums that will not only teach but will keep their interest. I plan on utilizing technology to incorporate themes. As an educator, I will always be prepared and provide a safe learning environment that is nurturing and healthy for children.
