Personal Philosophy of Education:
To teach students about the love of Jesus, His existence all around them, and to establish a personal relationship
with Him that will help prepare them for eternal life in heaven. It is my responsibility, as their teacher, to set an example of such a relationship. This will be done by seeking Jesus through prayer in our everyday classroom tasks, for one another’s needs, and praises. I feel that it is very important that the Bible be used in my classroom just as much as our curriculum textbooks. In doing so, students will be able to see for themselves that it provides a lot of answers and be able to apply its teaching in their homework and life experiences. As educators we need to help students develop a sense of service for others as Jesus served those around Him during His time on earth by providing them with opportunities around our communities where they will provide a service to others.
