My Educational Philosophy

I believe that every child deserves a equal opportunity at a challenging education, and I will do my best to differentiate my instruction so that every student's learning style is addressed in my classroom. Students should be able to be challenged, but within their own comfort zone. Every child is unique, and needs to be allowed to express their own talents and ideas.

About Me

My name is Michelle Meyer. This site was created in the fall semester of 2010, while I was a student at Illinois State University. I have always enjoyed volunteering throughout the community, and the students will be encouraged to do the same throughout the semester. The students will be required to volunteer for at least three hours a week. This will help not only the locations, that have been preapproved, but also the students discover how they can benefit and learn from others. I have always enjoyed working with children, and have had many opportunities to help children. Some of these opportunities including the following: coaching, babysitting, tutoring, and volunteering at multiple centers. I am about to begin student teaching, and believe this will be an experience that I will never forget. Throughout the unit, parents will be asked to help the students at home with projects, and come into the classroom as much as possible. Also, parents are encouraged to volunteer at the centers also throughout the year.
