    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
 
   

   My educational philosophy is closely related to the limited English proficient population.  I am always searching for ways to help my students become more competent in their second language.  Therefore, my perspective on teaching is to connect early and often with students; to encourage students to be active, engaged learners, and continue to develop a full range of learning approaches.

   When faced with self-assessment, a teacher must learn to transform past successes to an even higher level of student success in the years to come.  He or she must be open for reflection and constructive dialogues within the school environment, which will lead to a change in practice.
