Developing a Statement of Educational Philosophy
from By Jeff Danielian, NAGC Teacher Resource Specialist and editor,
Teaching for High Potential
I'm often found writing a great deal about what it means to be an educator. There are times when specific curricular topics or themes are discussed, social and emotional behaviors covered or a favorite conversation starter in the classroom is introduced. I have often told stories of countless students, shared parts of their work and analyzed the many interactions that can take place, both in and out of the classroom. I have made pleas for advocacy, requests for ideas and opinions, and in some cases, stood on my figurative soapbox in order to get my point across.
