EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

   


My philosophy of education is the notion that each student is a unique individual and must
not be taught this or that bit of knowledge. The student must be taught how to learn and
how to think. Therefore, education is really little more than a process in which the
student learns how to learn. I believe education is the act of improving both the
instructor and the student, teaching us both how to effectively learn.
