Teach them well and let them lead the way...
Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. My role as a teacher is to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, I teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. I present common core curriculum & state standards that involves the interests of the individual child and makes learning relevant to life and the diversity of ideas in the world. I incorporate themes, integrated units, projects, group work, individual work, and hands-on learning in order to make children active learners. Teaching is a lifelong process of learning about new philosophies and new strategies, learning from the parent, teacher and community. Finally, I believe interlinking learning into the world community is important to help children become caring and active members of society.
