Education is teamwork and I am delighted to be a member of the team of each and every student I serve. The teacher sets the stage for exploration and explanation. The student becomes intrigued by new information received in class and may choose to further research with family. The families build upon knowledge that students gain as well as triggers students to ask more questions and do further research. The community should foster the educational process. In communities, students should be able to apply their knowledge as well as explore new concepts that they may want to learn about. Different organizations throughout the community help students develop good character and become well rounded.
As a teacher, I feel that it is extremely important that students are an active part of their own educational process. I utilize the hands on approach to teaching and believe that experience is the best teacher. Teaching without expectation produces very little. If a student understands what is expected of them and trusts that you will assist them in meeting those expectations, teaching is a walk in the park. There is a smaller chance of failure if a lesson is taught constructively and taught again in a method that assists the prior knowledge. Sometimes students have a different level of understanding and may “get it” when they hear it a different way.
