This page is designed to let the parents of my students get to know a little bit about who I am.
I have lived in the Black Hills now for five years and I love being apart of such a great area. This summer I was a fire fighter for the U.S. Forest Sevice.
What I believe about education.
Education today has come a long
way even from eight years ago. Today there are many principles that are
being used because they were successful. Taking a look at education and
thinking about what education should be, I believe that education needs
to be constructive and not punitive. For some students this can be life
or death. The approach of education should be that of a positive attitude
and an open classroom where students actually feel that they can be successful.
Thus students will become more motivated and have higher self-determination
to learn. Education should be focused on meeting the student’s needs
as a learner rather than their performance. What teachers need to focus
on is the overall understanding and comprehension of knowledge necessary
for students to learn.
