Teaching Philosophy:

The foundation of my teaching philosophy is rooted in my investing in the achievements and accomplishments of others. I have always believed that education is the fabric that makes a person uniformly complete. What makes education so unique and fashionable is that it continuously exists, revisits itself, reinvents itself, and redesigns itself to fit the need of present times. Education always allows you the opportunity to stay “envogue”. This philosophical mindset allows me to keep abreast of current trends that are helpful in keeping my scholars in fashion with today’s “education styles.” I am passionate about fashion and style when applicable to educational knowledge.

From our reformist educator, Horace Mann’s philosophy of education for modernizing citizens, to Plato, Aristotle, and many of the perennials, the problems of education, of our current trajectory, and challenges through education was formed. The philosophy of education is still a “fashion buzz” in my eyes for learning, teaching, citizenry, and conformity to life.

As a professional educator, I live to learn in order that I might teach. I learn, so that I might impart or share knowledge with others, that they too may face society with stylish vogue, charisma, citizenry, and relevant knowledge.
