Have you ever read Dr. Seuss Oh, the Places You’ll Go? About once a week, I read this book to my three year old. The book describes greatness, and how no matter what as long as you try and give everything you do with your all then success will happen. Mountains will move and the awkward “waiting place” we all experience will continue but without us. Dr. Seuss states, “And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.) KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS” (1990, P. 42). Although obstacles my stand in my way, student success will always prevail. My overall classroom philosophy will consist of open communication, fun and inviting environment, and vision of teamwork with students, parents and myself.

Mencken once said, "The aim of public education is to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence, and so make them fit to discharge the duties of citizenship in an enlightened and independent manner".

We memorise facts to pass a test and forget about them later. We are trained to conform to the…

I have been observing this class every Thursday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. where I am learning so much about how to teach.
