My teaching philosophy

Their physical bodies need it

Dance, fitness, running, climbing

daring maneuvers, like jumping from up high

swinging and spinning

development of vestibular necessary for reading

Children learn best by doing

When they practice what is taught they learn better and remember longer

repetition is important, it is good to do the same thing over and over, or read the same book over and over.

Doing something repetitively builds knowledge

children need to experience through many different senses and modalities

smell, taste, touch, feel, sight, and hearing

kinestetic, sight, sound, music, mathematical, emotional, 100 languages of children

young children need movement

Their mind needs it

to read, write and understand math

movement=retention of learning

Children learn best when allowed time to play, move and have down time.

planning is important to guild your learning

guided learning with a plan can look messy and chaotic but builds memories

The memories I have of what I learned all have something we did with it.

Emotional messiness is part of childhood

Children are still learning how to be pro-social and as teachers we need to guide them.

Pro-social behavior should be a priority for young children

planning is essential

having a curriculum helps guide the teacher and the learning

Creating a plan needs to be collaborative

passionate teachers are easy to find but hard to keep.

as a teacher I often feel unappreciated by both public sentiment and public policy

Teachers should be paid a fair wage based on experience of good teaching practices

the wage difference between administration and teachers and preschool teachers should be more equitable

teaching is the most important job

I need collaborative work spaces to continue to grow as a teacher.

I work best collaboratively

Collaboration in ideas, plans and solutions make me a better teacher.

creating a class is a team effort

I work best with equals in education and thought

learning should be exciting, fun and interesting

my level of interest guides the child's interest

humans learn when strong emotion is attached, I want positive strong emotions to guide what children learn

I use what I know

research guides my teaching

great philosophers and researchers are who read

reflective thinking is important to me

my beliefs and knowledge are constantly changing

professional

academic standards

continued education

professional memberships and groups

NAEYC

Teachers are advocates

for teaching as a profession

for children and best practices

for families

public policy changes

we need to begin to teach for the future

our schools and the way we are teaching need to change

The future is changing and uncertain, we need to teach to create creative and forward thinkers.

Public education policy needs to get with the times about teaching

Teachers need to follow only good role models
