My Philosophy of Education

Teaching is not a profession; it’s a passion …

  • My philosophy of education is about a balance between the academic, the emotional, and the social and physical formation of the child. A teacher with patience, energy, and love can help children fall in love with learning.
  • I believe that the children’s experience must foster social-emotional skills in each child and create joyful school memories.
  • I believe that a child’s family is their first teacher. I believe that it is my job to create a link between home and school.
  • I want children to love coming to school each day. That is why I bring love, laughter, passion, and creativity to the learning experience. I want children to be creative thinkers, active learners, work with discipline, and learn about teamwork and responsibilities.
  • I believe that I can make a positive difference for each student every day.
  • I believe that it is essential to share ideas, techniques, strategies, and experiences with colleagues that will help them improve their teaching experiences.
