The instructional philosophy
of this teacher is simple, 'Teach the way in which students learn'. This
teacher believes that the students and their needs come first in the classroom.
She recognizes their strengths and their weaknesses, and then attempts
to build on their strengths. Her philosophy encourages the students to
do their very best. To enforce this philosophy, the teacher:
Is aware of students learning style and their capabilities: She gains knowledge
of the abilities and needs of the students.
Starts instruction where students learn: She designs lessons at the academic
level of each student to promote their own individual learning style and
challenge them to go a step further in the learning process.
Modifies teaching style to fit students: She instructs at the pace of students.
If students do not understand a lesson, then the teacher comes up with
different ideas and methods for students to further learn and comprehend.
Provides background experience: She relates lessons to the lives of the
students. She also provides them with hands on experiences, as well as
many field trips.
