Middle School Teaching Philosophy
I believe middle school is a place where students can find new interests, learn study and coping skills, explore ideas, become more independent, and discover what awaits for them in the future. It is a stepping stone that gives students an opportunity to find out about themselves. What do they like to do? What classes do they want to take? What opportunities are available for them? What do they value in life? As a teacher librarian, my goal is to help students explore many different paths.
