My ethical philosophy is an eclectic composite of the virtues and theories derived from Aristotle, Kant, and the teleological theories. Normative ethics, which include the virtue theory, duty theories, and teleological theories, are critical in determining an approach not only to education, but also to all aspects of one's life.In education, the combination of different components from each theory complements the set of beliefs that a person combines to create a strong system of beliefs and values by which to live and function.

My philosophy is eclectic and may change as I gain more experience in the field, but what will not change is my belief that education is not a series of facts, but is instead tools students can use to help them in life.

My philosophy is based on progressivism, a student-centered philosophy. Progressivism is based around real world experiences. It allows students curiosities to be tested and answers the concerns they may have about the world around them. Curriculum is based on life's experiences and students experimenting to get the right answer. Books are used to enhance the world but are not the main source of information.

A child’s education is one of the most important, if not the most important, aspects of his or her life. With this in mind, teachers are very influential characters.

I believe education is essential to the future success of today’s youth.

If attention is paid to these four points, every child will have the best opportunity to succeed in life.
