As an educator, I want to create a safe, friendly, and comfortable learning environment for all of my students. In this learning space, I want to promote learning and encourage students to be curious about the world. It is very important for students to be able to learn in an environment that makes them want to learn. As a science educator, I want to inspire my students to try new things, explore the concepts of science, and challenge the concepts, offering new ideas on how to approach new problems. Science is interactive, exciting, and always growing as technology has evolved and changed over time because of our curiosity as human beings. I believe that students learn best in an interactive environment between their classmates and their teacher, especially in hands-on labs and demonstrations to help solidify concepts. Students learn best when they can interact with the world around them and the people that are working alongside them to achieve the same goal. Physics is applied math with scientific concepts of how the real world works and it is important to show that connection, especially since STEM fields are growing rapidly. Since physics is an applied math, I believe that students to be exposed to the math alongside the concepts because they are intertwined. Students should learn about how the world works around them, especially since there are many important concepts in science that they would need to know in the future. I also believe in the transparent teaching approach; which means I believe that students should know why they are learning the concepts they are being taught. When students know why they are learning this, they tend to place more importance on it. I want my students to be curious and adventurous when exploring the world of physics, because there is so much to discover. Lastly, I want to inspire my students like my high school teachers inspired me: to continue to grow, learn and work for your dream.
