Educational Philosophy
It is the job of the educational system to provide young people with the tools necessary to be successful as adults; this includes their professional, personal, and interpersonal lives. As a part of that system, I am responsible for endowing my students with a subset of tools that are best relayed through my content - English. I must teach them to be analytical readers and clear, concise, and correct writers.  These are both valuable skills to any successful professional. I must teach them to be reflective and to appreciate great works, which will enhance their private life.  I must also teach them to wear the shoes of others and see different points of view, an ability that will create limitless opportunities for new and enduring relationships.
