Changing the World Through Education My philosophy on teaching involves changing the world through my students.
I want to enable my students, through education and motivation, to leave the world better than they have hound it.
I will use my educational background and my life experiences to enlighten and teach my students.
Issues that I feel are crucial to address which also pertain to my particular philosophy are increasing political awareness, raising racial tolerance and acceptance, reducing child abuse and violence against women, and recycling and appreciation for our natural resources.
Other countries like France have the means of building schools and employing teachers, so like this children can be educated.
Obviously, even in France there are families which don’t have the means to send their children to school but because France is a rich country schools are provided for everyone.
Like many social reconstructionists, I feel that we as teachers owe it to the future generations to instruct them how to handle the problems they will encounter in hopes that they will pass on fewer problems to their children.
I will work every minute of everyday to ensure my students’ successful futures.
I believe that students need a routine to help them think clearly and freely, such as that suggest by the Perennialist approach.
Upon graduating from Concord College, I will attend graduate school and receive my Master’s degree in Education.
