EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Education must conform to idea that everyone can not be treated or taught equally.  Each student has specific needs, and its the understanding of those needs that are most important.  The use of 21 Century skills has to be the forefront of our educational society.  Media and internet are the main recourses for anyone, and using this technology is an integral part of todays curriculum.  Having these technology at our fingertips doesn’t mean that we will automatically achieve higher test scores or better understanding for our classes.  We must utilize the understandings of Habits of Mind and Problem Solving.  Students must be able to identify the problem or situation, and be able to come up with a conclusion on how to solve it.  And not just solve, but solve it the best way possible… achieve the highest goal possible.  Students must be able to ask good questions, use prior knowledge and practice metacognition to reach the goal at hand.
