Hello, my name is Felicia Mena Evans and I teach the ART of Technology....
My Philosophy of Education
To think about a philosophy of education, is to define who you are as a teacher. It is through this philosophy, that a teacher is able to express who they are and what defines their teaching style. For this reason, I hold my own personal beliefs very close to my heart, as I do with my artwork because of the fact that is it a piece of who I am.
- My first principle in regards to my philosophy of education focuses on the primary reasoning for teaching, the students.
- My next principle is based on the notion of compassion. To be compassionate, you have to always think of others. To me this is what teaching should be all about. Students should always be number one, in regards to teaching strategies, educational theory, and education reform.
- My last principle is based on the idea of creativity that goes beyond the art classroom. The notion of creativity extends to the ability to look at the world from a different personal perspective, to think “outside the box,” and constantly question the possibilities in solving problems.
