My Philosophy:
I believe that all children come to school with a desire to learn. We as teachers have a great responsibility to help our students continue this desire throughout their lives. I see a teacherís goal as three distinct yet interrelated responsibilities. I believe teachers are called to inspire, motivate, and educate students. We need to inspire our students to love learning and to become independent and lifelong learners. We must motivate our students to strive for excellence. This can be easily done when we as teachers make learning fun and interesting for our students. The use of technology in the classroom is a great way to motivate students. All students have a right to a good education. Our instruction must be curriculum based to teach and prepare our students to compete and live in a technology rich world. When students are inspired, motivated, and educated there are no limits on what they can accomplish!
