This paper discusses the writer's personal beliefs about teaching, learning and students, as well as her views on knowledge, what is worth knowing and her personal educational philosophy. The writer then discusses how to implement the philosophies into her professional and personal goals and describes how she will use these beliefs as a basis of her instructional practice. The writer also relates her personal educational philosophy to the established educational philosophies and explains how they are connected.

From the Paper:

"My hope is that I can take a little from each of the philosophies I have learned about and evaluate my students individually to adapt those philosophies into a successful teaching style. My day-to-day classroom will not consist of hours of lecture or mundane busy work that does not engage my students. When I find myself at a loss to how to reach my students, I will communicate with them and incorporate their feedback to the best of my ability to insure they are constantly learning. My ideas may seem unrealistic and my expectations of myself and my students probably come across as arrogant, but if we start out with ideas of failure and low expectations that is exactly what we will get."
