My teaching philosophy is based heavily around delivering a classroom environment that reaches every single learner in a 21st-century teaching style. We work heavily together figuring out our learning styles. Once we find our strengths we continue to grow in these areas. Next, we will begin to build on our weaknesses. We do this with a cooperative and project-based learning philosophy. I believe once the students know how they learn the best they will be able to take these skills with them in the future and use them to help them succeed with any teaching style or learning situation. I spend a lot of time preparing them for the next chapter of their lives, whatever that may be. I teach them to be lifelong learners. To do this effectively they need to develop a love and a passion for learning. The students will experience a shift where they will have to begin to take responsibility for themselves. With this philosophy comes high expectations. I expect every student to come to class ready to work as a team, treat others with kind and caring attitudes, and be ready to solve dynamic problems. With a cooperative learning teaching, philosophy comes hard work, we will laugh and cry together. We will build strong positive relationships and create memories that last a lifetime. When working with staff, teaching and learning, this philosophy stays the same.
