Elementary Education

IMG_1918My winters are spent making the most of my formal education by continuing my work as a teacher. I have taught in many diverse schools with very unique children ranging from the ages of 2 to 18 years old. The schools I have worked in included Spanish, Arabic, and Hebrew speaking students. I firmly believe this has prepared me to work with all students with any language barriers. Most recently, I have spent the majority my time working in an administrative position which has taught me a great deal about curriculum planning and scheduling processes.

 

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all students, no matter of what race, culture, socio-economic status, or disability have the capability to learn. It is up to the teacher to have the capabilities and knowledge to efficiently educate each individual learner.  When a teacher reaches out to auditory, visual and kinesthetic learners at the same time, it is then he or she is being an effective teacher. Students should be able to express themselves creatively through their schoolwork. Most importantly, they should be able to develop a strong, safe, and open community among their classmates.  Lessons should be overlapping and integrated as a comparison of life. Teachers should strive to achieve having their students take ownership in their learning.
