My teaching philosophy is to make students feel comfortable, safe, and valued. It is where students feel excited to learn and interested in learning. In order to create this, it need to work hard to create an environment conducive to student-centered learning (SCL). These student-centered learning strategies will ensure that students are invested in their learning. It is important to establish rules and procedures that highlight respect and open-mindedness, get to know each other’s ideas, value different opinions and share their thoughts to their peers. Activities and procedures that place, students are at the central. Student-centered learning will generate an interest in learning that lends to a desire to become lifelong learners.
