Educational Philosophy

My belief is that all children have the potential to learn. By using a constructiivist approach filled with strong anchors, experiential learning, and student centered lessons teachers have the potential to offer any child and meaningful, constructive, and even fun learning experience.  Furthermore, I believe technology plays an integral role in ensuring a quality education.  It offers access to resources that would have been accessible prior and greatly democratizes education.  Technology must be integrated into our classroom.
