My philosophy of teaching is that everyone should have a voice and a chance to express themselves freely. Education should be open to all who are willing to learn and share ideas with one another. Teachers, especially, should have a chance to learn from each other so that they can better their students education.
I live in an urban and diverse community. There are people of many different backrounds with many ways of relating to one another. It is a nice neighborhood where I feel safe and welcomed. There are parks nearby in which I can have a chance to escape from the busy and often hectic urban life!
At the elementary school in which I am a student teacher, there is a strong sense of community and underestanding. The enviornment there is wonderful because everyone there values education and values what each individual brings to the community.
|My Roles and Responsibilities|
My role right now is as a student at SFSU and as a student teacher at Jose Ortega Elementry school. I hope to finish the credential program at SFSU and go on to become an elementary school teacher in San Francisco.
