Philosophy of Teaching
My educational philosophy is based on the fact that every child can learn. As educators, it is our responsibility to stay current in the latest research findings as well as engage in active research in the field of education so that we can best meet the needs of ALL children. In addition, learning at all levels should be exciting, engaging, and challenging.
My research interest includes lesson study as a form of professional development. In particular, what impact does lesson study have on teachers' instructional strategies? My research interest also includes action research as a form of professional development and the implementation of instructional strategies to increase understanding in mathematics.
