Philosophy of Education
I believe that the relationship between the teacher and student is extremely important for children. A positive relationship between a student and a teacher is hard to get started but can be achieved for both individuals at either end. My goal is for all students to have fun in the classroom, as long as they are working hard to learn something new each and every day in a respectful manner. If students can achieve this goal, then they will become graduates of The Calhoun School.
