Educational Philosophy

In my classroom, I want to make students feel safe and capable. As a math teacher, this isn’t always the simplest task. While many people fear math, my educational philosophy is to show students how to use math as a tool for everyday problem solving. I think it’s important for students to have an active role in their learning; asking questions, searching for solutions, and testing their results. I hope to guide them in this learning process, providing a stepping stone not just in math, but in their education as a whole.
