My Philosophy of Education:
I believe in the principles of constructivist education. By constructivist education I mean that all learners construct knowledge through their experiences. Rich experiences allow students to construct complex and accurate constructions. Science education needs to provide students with authentic hands-on experiences that include time for students to engage in collaborative reflection about their experiences.
