Teaching philosophy
I believe that all students are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. Therefore, students will be assisted to express themselves and accept themselves for who they are, as well embrace the differences of others.
Since, every classroom has its own unique community; then my role as the teacher will be to assist each student in developing their own potential and learning styles. I will present a curriculum that will incorporate each different learning style, as well as make the content relevant to the students' lives. I will incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activate students learning. I passionately endorse what the Russian educational psychologist L.S.Vygotsky said about learning – “it is a socially constructed”. Thus, my students need opportunities to collaborate with each other, as well as with me, to learn and gain expertise about the act of teaching. To be effective teachers, my students must have the opportunity to take responsibility for becoming life-long learners. This means sharing with others what they learn about teaching and realizing all the things that they have not yet discovered. In terms of assessment, I do firmly believe in a type of assessment that is with “Corrective Instruction”. That is, Assessments must consist of a corrective instruction designed to touch upon whatever learning errors the assessment identified.
