- TEACHING PHILOSOPHY -


I believe that an effective teacher practices self-awareness, honesty, and humility.

I believe that an effective teacher uses demonstrations, examples/non-examples, experiences, projects, and models to communicate the concepts, skills, and techniques critical for each student’s success.

I believe that an effective teacher plans a lesson with specific end results in mind.

I believe that an effective teacher plans for where his/her students might get stuck.

I believe that an effective teacher plans for how his/her students will demonstrate learning.

I believe that an effective teacher plans adjustments for students who can already demonstrate mastery and for students who need additional help/time.

I believe that an effective teacher takes ownership of the success and failures of the students they are leading.

I believe that teachers are students first.
