Question and Answer
Please describe your teaching philosophy.

My philosophy of education is based upon my experience and the learning from great philosophers of education. Through my experience I have learned and know that Plato’s educational philosophy was grounded in his vision that education is holistic, in facts, skills, physical discipline, and music and art, which he considered the highest form of endeavor. He believed that talent was found in all children. This is so true, because all children given the opportunity to learn and excel; can and will develop their talents. I agree with Immanuel Kant’s philosophy of education in that children learn through doing. I teach with hands-on-approach. Children learn through participating and doing things on their own. As Aristotle placed great emphasis on balancing the theoretical and practical aspects of subjects taught. He mentioned the important subjects include reading, writing, math, music, physical education, literature and history, but he mentioned the most importance of play. Social and academic are hand-in-hand important to the development of a well rounded child.
