Philosophy of teaching
My philosophy on teaching children is to make it fun. Hands on activities tend to be remembered children often want to learn more. Children will remember the lessons the more interesting you make it. All children deserve the opportunity to learn and grow in a positive happy environment. Smile at every child. Smiling is contagious so by smiling at a child during a lesson it might just turn their day around.
Meeting friends for sushi, running, spending time with my adorable nieces and nephews as well as my entire family, swimming, traveling, adventurous type activities such as skydiving, scuba diving, boat riding, going to the movies, hiking in the mountains, white water rafting, and watching or going to sporting events. I am a UT fan and there is nothing like watching UT football!
We are very blessed with so many wonderful opportunities. We have so many things to smile about... Smile, and be happy. Very few things are worth frowning about. If you are so unhappy that you must frown then, take a good look at the reason you are frowning and see if you can do something to change it. That way you can start smiling again! Remember smiling is contagious!
