Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

It is my belief that now, more than ever, there is the need for young men and women, to embrace education. Education is the way our children will change the world and improve the quality of life for everyone. Moreover, education is an individual, unique experience for every student who enters a classroom. I believe in providing a variety of strategies to make learning accessible to all students. It is also vitally important for teachers to form partnerships with each other. Solid communication among teachers, parents, administration and non-teaching staff will promote the sharing of ideas and methods and provide a network of support. By working as an educational team, teachers can expand their teaching skills and provide the finest education possible to their students. My goal as a board member is to help students grow academically and socially, and to become life-long learners. By respecting the differences of each student’s personality and learning style, I will create an educational environment that will encourage all students to reach their highest potential. In summary, I believe that each student is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, academically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
