I believe in education and pursuing it to my fullest capability. For years I've said I will be a doctor of education or anything related to fields in which I find interest--and I will be. It is just taking some time. I believe all students can learn. They just need the appropriate tools to aid them, and the motivated teachers to teach them, and they will be fine. I'm not a typical, by-the-book, text-oriented teacher. I believe that students learn differently (tactile, verbal, audio, visual, etc.) and need to have various methods in which to learn. I'm very hands-on when it comes to activities and projects. I believe the more they practice what they're learning and the more they apply it, the more they will retain.
