Personal Philosophy of Teaching Statement (6%)

Philosophy of teaching statements are concise statements of what you believe about teaching and learning and being an educator. Often, people do not include every single aspect of their philosophy of teaching in such statements but instead focus on its core elements, the ones that are most important to or indicative of them as a teacher.  Most sources recommend that you keep your teaching philosophy statement between one and two pages in length (approximately 250-500 words, which is the requirement for this assignment).  Your teaching philosophy statement should address what you believe and why, and provide brief examples of how you plan to implement it in the classroom. An exemplar will be provided in Canvas.
