Teaching philosophy

I've tried to apply many measures and principals to my teaching method, because I want to reach my students on levels beyond simply presenting the class material. It sometimes takes a lot of creativity to do that! Among the factors measured by the Torrance Tests were fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration, all abilities that can be important to success in the classroom. I learned it is better to be less flexible when it comes to maintaining high standards for my students. Some of the other measures assessed by the Torrance Tests that I also incorporate in y teaching are emotional expressiveness, movement and action, unusual visualization, extending and breaking boundaries, and humor. I want to take my students beyond the material to application in their own lives, to access their curiosities, and to start on a future that begins with the skills and material I teach. Of course, I have my own style. The core elements of my teaching philosophy ­involve creating stimulating and challenging learning environments, providing effective mentoring, and respecting differences. My ability to enhance and integrate these key elements inevitably requires the skills that I have acquired as I continue to grow from learning by teaching. My first teacher taught me that great teachers are, in fact, students themselves, and as a teacher, I can learn as much from my students as they can learn from me.
