PART ONE: ABOUT ME
Section One: Your Personal Education Philosophy
My name is Jordan Elledge, I have a big heart when it comes to working with children with and without special needs. I have worked with children for a little over four years now. I work with children who have special needs and children who do not. I love working with the children and their therapists along with their parents to get the children where they need to be. I feel very privileged and blessed to see these children succeed. I want to do my best and give these children the motivation to strive for even more success each and everyday. Children learn best in group settings and they thrive off of having fun while doing work. All children are capable of learning. My overall goal as a teacher is to strive to be my best for my students each and everyday and to make sure we are on the same page of understanding when it comes to covering materials. I want to offer to different learning materials for different individual learners.
Section Two: Your Educational Technology Philosophy
Educators are responsible for introducing technology in the classroom setting. We are to teach our students internet safety and how to use the internet tools safely and effectively in a classroom. We want to cover safety rules for our students safety and how they should handle an unusual or dangerous situation online. For teachers technology provides a variety of endless activities and projects for students. It allows teachers to seek other teachers out for ideas and talk about other ideas they have for their students. As a teacher I plan on using Educational videos to get children alert and motivated to learn as much as possible.
