A  Statement of

Educational Philosophy

    As an educator and parent, I believe that education is a life-long process of growth. What is wonderful about education is that we are neither too young nor old to learn.  Education means total development in which a person’s intellectual, physical and emotional well-being are addressed.  The development of knowledge, skills and abilities are acquired through teaching, training, study or experience.  Education is most relevant when it pertains to one’s interest, ability or has individual meaning. This enhances the educational process and learning is more likely retained.


He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.
