Teaching Philosophy

        The following are philosophies which I have borrowed from other sources to incorporate into my own teaching philosophy. These statements have influenced my thoughts and ideas about teaching. They have helped me to sculpt my teaching style into one that I hope encourages my students to think for themselves, and to continue their learning beyond the classroom.

        I hope to be able to incorporate these ideas and philosophies into my teaching so that my students can become responsible, independent citizens. I want them to know that I care not only about what they are learning, but also for their well-being. I believe that the statements that I have chosen reflect this philosophy.
