Education is important in the fact that it effects
everyone. My philosophy of education includes the belief that education has
three important parts: children, parents and teachers.
Children play a significant role in their own
education. Children should be making decisions about their classroom and have a
voice. They need to be able to influence their education they are receiving
because they are the ones that make it happen. But children need to know their
limits and it is important they experience the usual consequences for poor
decision-making. It is important to remember that all children can learn and
deserve to have an equal opportunity to achieve an education.
Parents also play an important role in education.
Parents provide the other side to their children's education. What children

teaching techniques that compensate for different learning styles. Being
creative is not my only goal; I also want to create strong functional
parent-teacher relationships, a positive atmosphere, and a method of discipline
that will benefit my students.
In conclusion, children, parents, and teachers
need to be partners in education. This partnership will help the children
succeed. The success of children is the most important goal for teachers to
strive for during their teaching career. Simply put, children need to succeed.
