My Purpose (Isaiah 61:1-3)
It is my goal to expose your children to knowledge and wisdom that God has given to me through the curricula taught here. I will do my best to enable them to be leaders-for-right by giving them the spiritual and educational tools they will need. I will encourage them to believe that they can do anything that God wants them to do. I will enjoy the fruit when they do.
My Teacher’s Credo
It is the end of the year 2007. I am on vacation at my father’s house for a rare visit to my homeland. The trees are now coated with a picturesque, fresh winter snow coat. One of the beauties of living in the Mid-West is staying snow-bound in the house. It makes you sit still and meditate just a little more. This is a year of introspection for me. I have looked carefully at what I think I have accomplished. I have considered my past and looked at what I think are some of my successes and failures. It has motivated me to try to sit down and write down some things I truly believe , and what I think is important enough to keep me trudging on. I want to thank my peers, students, and fellow teachers for what their influence and the wisdom have taught me. Their dialog and input and a little snow have provided impetus for me to sit still and write a short synopsis of personal beliefs gleaned from over thirty years of teaching.
I believe that I am to be a living example of my Heavenly Father.
I believe that I should teach, not just tell.
I believe in Apprenticeship Teaching.
I believe in Speed-Teaching.
I do not believe in Quality Time.
I believe in Success-Motivation.
I believe in Peer-to-Peer-teaching.
I believe my students can fly.
I do not believe in failure.
