My teaching philosophy can be summed up simply: allow kids to attempt, discover, fail, and try again with as little direct intervention from adults as possible.
Encourage, affirm, and believe in students. Acknowledge their value. Learn as much from them as they can possibly learn from me.
Instead of teaching students about reading, let them read.
In lieu of sitting in chairs, walk, climb, and sit on the floor.
Create a desire and watch the child explore.
Be unconventional. Question the way things have always been done. Ask how it can be done better or more simply.
Go back to the way kids learned before they started school. Provide opportunities for revelation.
