My Personal Philosophy of Education
My personal philosophy of education is comprised of essential ideals that I believe an effective teacher should possess. Every single child on this earth is different, so how can I assume that a simple lecture is enough for my students?

By this I mean that my role as a teacher is to adjust to the individual child and teach to their learning style and their needs. To assist in doing this, the constructivist approach and direct instruction will be actively involved in my classroom. The role of administration and the students’ parents is to be the support system of the students; without an adequate support system, the child will struggle more in classes.

For most students, choosing to attend those schools depend on the most common factors: money, major/program/certification, convenience, and preference.
