Philosophy of Education

I believe that education should be student-focused. My goal in teaching is not to impress my students (or others) with my depth or breadth of knowledge, but rather to see each of my students grow in the following areas:

  • Knowledge of and service to our Lord
  • Respect for and service to their peers
  • Understanding of the core concepts of the given subject
  • Ability to think critically about the given subject and in all areas
  • Ability to listen to, evaluate and respect the ideas & opinions of others while not necessarily agreeing
