Teaching Philosophy

Teaching Philosophy

Life is an ever-changing and dynamic progress most effectively done through a systematic approach and with reflection on the past. Goal setting and personal objectives (purpose) drive education and are part of that change process. Through my experience and education as a teacher and administrator, I have an understanding of how students "need to know". The students drive the subject content through an "Active Voice" in the classroom, not from a century ago, but from today's times for problems that we face today and tomorrow.

Learning takes place through reading, vicariously, and by actual "experiences". Among the ways of knowing or obtaining knowledge are by divine revelation and authority, through personal intuition and through experimentation, from our own five (multiple) senses and our own power of reasoning. I reflect on the students' interests, on what motivates them, and on their process of change to provide "Learning Experiences."

Inquiry-based learning is Intentional Learning around Meaningful Content, making direct Relational Connections between the new generation of students to nontraditional students informational backgrounds, challenging all of us to be better teachers. I teach the Language of Questions and the Power of the Brain to resolve problems to life-long questions that transforms thinking beyond the classroom.
