    College Athletes Should Get Paid College athletes are gifted in the world of sports. Every athlete shows up for practice each day and works as hard as they can possibly work.

    In the completion of this project I am starting to gain more knowledge in implementing project based learning.

    My educational philosophy is rooted in the idea that students learn from doing while using tangible, real-life materials and experiences, and should be engaged in opportunities to experiment and question the world around them. Classroom learnings are complimented with thought out educational field trips to deepen the students’ connections.
