I would like to gain more knowledge and experience about teaching in a classroom setting. The experience will help me gain insights and introduce me to different teaching strategies that can help me understand the needs of a student. It will help me develop into a better teacher by exposing me to a different environment and through giving me the opportunities to become the best teacher than I can be.


My Teaching Philosophy’s Main Idea:

No student is alike, and each learns best through experience and teachers should be able to provide learning opportunities where the student uses his body and mind. Each student learns differently, thus, the teacher should be able to teach the student according to his/her learning style and interests.
