Philosophy of Technology Education
I believe that each child is unique in his or her own way. Each child needs a safe and caring environment that will promote emotional, intellectual, social, and physical growth. It is my role as an educator to help students meet their full potential in these key areas by providing an environment that is safe and encourages the sharing of ideas.
