3: Welcome! Hello Viewers, This is my ONLINE Personal Philosophy of Education. I created this "Mixbook" known as a scrapbook to share with my faculty advisors, professors, peers and to the public. One of my passions is integrating technology and social media with education. So, I thought this is a perfect way to share my thoughts, feelings and beliefs about education and how students learn. I hope you enjoy what is very precious to me! Sincerely, Miss Johnston

16: Importance of the Parent-Teacher Relationship | As an educator, creating a positive rapport with parents is incredibly important. Providing multiple ways of communicating is key to reaching ALL parents. For example, creating a classroom blog, Twitter, E-mail, phone, agenda, ect.

18: Howard Garner's Multiple Intelligences | Bodily-Kinesthetic Spatial Linguistic Logical-Mathematical Musical Inter-personal Intra-personal Naturalist

19: Differentiated Instruction | “Intelligence is diverse and dynamic” and it is vital to "educate the whole being”. -Sir Ken Robinson

20: Inclusion | "Diversity should be celebrated rather than seen as a problem or inconvenience” -Brown 2011 | Bringing forth students strengths is maximized when students voice their own experiences about their culture and traditions. Sharing these experiences with the whole class is most beneficial to creating a class community.

29: Quotes from Faculty Advisers & Teacher Associates | How Others Describe Miss Johnston | "Amy will be a great teacher and I wish her luck." | "Amy was professional in her conduct at .... , and she was a reflective and inquiring candidate to work with during her time." | "They enjoy learning with you, and several of them came and spoke to me to make sure I knew it!" | "I would highly recommend Amy, as I believe she will be an integral part of any staff she joins."

30: To be a reflective practitioner you truly need to know who you are as a person before you decide upon your personal philosophy of education. Based on my "Mixbook", I hope I have demonstrated who I am as a person and who I am as a teacher candidate. However, when in the field of education you should always be reflecting on classroom strategies or lessons that were or were not successful. Personally, I can not wait to have this opportunity!
