An educational philosophy is a personal statement of a teacher's guiding principles about "big picture" education-related issues, such as how student learning and potential are most effectively maximized, as well as the role of educators in the classroom, school, community, and society. Each teacher comes to the classroom with a unique set of principles and ideals that affects student performance. A statement of educational philosophy sums up these tenets for self-reflection, professional growth, and sometimes sharing with the larger school community. Every effective teacher has an educational philosophy although it may not always be explicitly written out. Inspire other educators by sharing your fundamental values about teaching, students, and the role of a classroom teacher in the community. I always believe that the child's mind is delicate. Nurturing his young mind with freedom and thirst for knowledge develops into a more independent, more scientific, and dynamic as he deals with realistic problems. As an educator, I should maintain a democratic classroom which is venue for authentic learning and problem-solving. I should reflect on what had been done during the day and what things I should improve for tomorrow at the end of the day.

I believe that teaching is a lifetime commitment. It affects ones personal life, personal choices, personal decisions. It is the shining star that tells us where we want to go. It is the reason for ones existence. Teaching is a passion. It shapes one's future. It directs our daily activities. Teaching inspire us to influence people. Teaching is also a way of life. It is an avenue for living spiritually peaceful with others. We believe in teaching the whole child. We feel every child has worth and can learn. A teacher needs to provide differentiated instruction to best serve each individual child. Teaching should be a cohesive effort between school and home. Having a good rapport with the students is key. I consider myself as an sculptor, so I need to go step by step with them, trying to get perfection from them. I try to inspire them everyday to be better and to improve themselves as a student and as a person. I approach my job as a second grade teacher with an underlying optimistic respect for my students and their parents. I know that sometimes I will have to make difficult choices that perhaps my "clients" (i.e. the children and their parents) won't like initially. However, I try to remember that I didn't become a teacher in order to be popular or to become friends with my students. I focus on the educated, responsible, and engaged citizens of the community (and world) that I want to help shape my students into. I know my time with them is ultimately brief, so I try to make as much of a positive impact as possible through example and instruction. On those difficult days, it really helps to keep my mind geared toward the big picture of why I became a teacher in the first place.
