My Personal Beliefs and Philosophy

I would like to introduce myself to all of  you. My name is Caroline Clark and I attented Jacksonville Univeristy where I received my Masters in Elementary Education.  

 I have a mixture of constructivist and traditionalist approaches. I enjoy having the students be explorers while I am a guide; furthermore, the students will take an active role in their learning processes. I enjoy  having the students work together as a group to come up with an explanation or answer to an unknown question. I also believe there is a time to enforce traditionalist approaches. I will enforce this approach when going over rules, showing the students how to exit the room in case of emergency, giving them notes and they will copy them down, when I am lecturing, and needing the students to work independently.
