The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now.

My philosophy of education is in line with those identified in "Philosophical Foundations of Education."
Provide a curriculum that directly relates to the learner's community, not a textbook version or one delivery mode that is not connected to real life experiences.
Provide a learning environment that is suited for the learner to be self-directed and flexible; not the standard classroom format that has existed in the past.
Learn how to communicate with students by learning from them. I support and coach learners on how to effectively communicate with others.
Develop and sustain thought processes for social justice and not selfish gain.
Develop the sense of unity; inclusion and not exclusion based on an individual's culture, race, religion, sexuality, sex, or other stereotypes.
