Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. - Anonymous

Each individual student has the capability to learn. Although we exude different qualities and personalities, we are all adept to learning new concepts, no matter how large or small. As noted in the quote above, it is my firm belief that regardless of disabilities or language barriers, it is my duty as an educator to teach each child to their strengths and abilities.

Every child should be provided with an educationally rich and stimulating atmosphere in which to explore and learn. The teacher should act as their guide and facilitator as opposed to the only source of information. I believe that children learn best through a cognitive and constructivist approach to develop an intrinsic motivation and desire for their own learning. Through this model, children will not only learn in the classroom, but continue their quest for inquiry and develop a lifelong love of learning outside of school walls.

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity he will continue the learning process as long as he lives. - Clay P. Bedford
