My philosophy of education is that learning is a lifelong endeavor that never stops. This learning is not just measured in academic development, but also in social and personal development. It occurs not just in the classroom, but also through experience in the real world. This idea of lifelong learning connects with my strong belief in continuous improvement and the fact that we can all learn from our and others’ experience to constantly strive to get better at everything we do. This belief is true not only for all students, but for teachers, parents, and the community.
We are all lifelong learners and this means that we have the capacity and opportunity to continuously improve, no matter our background, age, or previous experience. As I learn something every day to become a better teacher, I expect the same from my students and peers. Education is a process that lasts our entire lives, not just the time we are in school. Consequently, we can always improve and get better.
As a math teacher, my goal is to get my students to love math and appreciate how important it is in our daily lives. Math is everywhere and there is nothing in this world that isn't connected to math in some way. I believe that one of the core values of math is that it teaches us how to work on multi-step problems, which is a skill that is useful throughout one’s academic and professional career and in one's personal life. I'm passionate about math and I'm motivated to build that passion in my students.
Antoni and I have covered so many intriguing concepts in math together so far this year. We are always tackling such tough and cool parts of math, and I am always left super excited about math after our classes.
Antoni Is the best math teacher I have ever had. He is organized, clear, and encouraging. I am definitely signing up for another semester with him. 🙂
