Philosophy of Teaching

I believe each child is a gift from God and each child has different way of learning.  I believe it is our role to provide for each and every child the knowledge that they are a part of  God's  family because He loves them and they in turn should love Him.  As educators, we are preparing children to be lifelong  learners in both the secular world and in God's world and these attributes should not be separate or different.  I believe an important role of being an educator is being an example of Christ and showing Christ's love through my words, actions and teaching.
