Personal philosophy summary
As a beginning educator, I believe that establishing relationships with the students to be essential. My content area of the Social Studies not only encompasses elements of history and geography but it deals with the "how" and "why" of becoming a productive member of society. Given basic knowledge, I expect my students to also think for themselves and to take charge of their own learning.
I achieve this by modeling proper behavior in my classroom and also in the way I communicate with other adults. As an example, collaboration i.e. learning to work with others is a vital skill necessary in becoming a successful student and person.
Also, I stand firm in my belief that diversity should be embraced and that all children can and will learn given the proper support.
I seek a full-time teaching position at a school district that will be able to provide me with the resources and tools needed to be successful as a teacher.
Given the opportunity, I would like to showcase my character by the way I reflect the goals and expectations set by the school and the district. Sharing my passion for learning, I look forward to interacting with students, their families, the faculty, and the community as a whole.
