No matter your age, my philosophy of education remains the same - I strongly support student centered learning. Student centered learning reflects students' own interests and learning styles, draws upon individual strengths, and allows for engaging learning activities. Learning is more valuable when it's personal and it helps build self-responsibility, an invaluable life skill.
My goal for students is to offer the supports needed in order to develop into well-rounded, kind individuals who contribute positively to the world in which we live. Becoming an independent learner through student centered learning is only part of the equation. The other part is incorporating critical thinking and creative thinking skills into learning.
My aim is to offer a variety of learning activities and resources that can benefit people of all ages. My main focus is on learning skills and thinking skills. As the website grows, you'll see more STEM and Project Based Learning.
