Philosophy of Education
I believe that children must be active participants in the learning process. It is my job to provide information, tools, and opportunity for learning, but it is up to the students to take what I give them and learn. I want students to be avid question askers, because without questions I will not be able to guide the students to find their answers. I will provide my class with the tools for learning, but I will need their questions, curiosity, and cooperation to enhance and enrich their learning experience.
During this time of Distance Learning, it is important that we communicate with each other to be successful in getting through this new approach to learning. Communication needs to come from myself, as well as from you and your student. Please be patient with each other as this is a new approach to school and though we do want to keep learning, it is not the same as being in school. Take time to interact as a family and share in the learning process.
