Educational Philosophy

My educational philosophy for teaching my future students is patience and understanding. Not all students will catch on to what the teacher is explaining and teaching as quickly as others and because of this, many students are scared to ask for help or for the teacher to explain in a way they can better understand in fear of being mocked or getting called “stupid” by the other students or even the teacher her/himself. I think having the patience to work with the students that struggle and understand that the way we teach might make sense to us, but might not make sense to the students, rather than punishing a student for not understanding, or not doing the work correctly, we as teachers need to take the time to educate our students the best way for them, not for us.
