Philosophy of Education

As scholars we master our subject and promote critical thinking. Critical thinking begins with asking essential questions aimed towards practical application. Acquiring knowledge by using efficient and diverse methods of research is key to answering the essential questions.

As educators we welcome diverse thought, knowing every student is capable of excellence. Therefore, we are engaging, and inspiring to promote a lifelong investment in learning. Retention is assured by making current and relevant connections. Application should always end in good life decisions.

As mentors we set the standards of behavior, and lead by example. There should always be exhausted efforts for restitution, and redemption. To have a life well lived is the best proof that success has been achieved!

Gives you the leadership opportunity to deepen relationships and exhibit success in yourself and others
Link Crew Leader (Former Employee), Belmont, CAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: everything!
Cons: none!
Everyday would consist of planning, coordinating, and facilitating workshops and events for the academic and social success of the students. I also counseled them with academic and personal issues and also extended this service to concerned parents. I loved my bosses and my colleagues- they are the kindest and most fun people ever! The hardest part of the job was organizing event that involved parents because of their tight schedules, and the most enjoyable was making lasting relationships and seeing the girls succeed.

Internship was a Blessing
Intern (Former Employee), Fairfield, CTJuly 22, 2012
Pros: learning experience, good coworkers, free lunch
Cons: unpaid internship, long drive
This internship was at a Catholic High School and it included a lot of teacher/student meeting, paperwork, guidance sessions, and interactions with different groups on campus. I learned a lot about interpersonal communication and about the catholic school environment. I worked in a small office with three guidance counselors and absolutely loved it. Meetings with students were my favorite because they were all so dynamic and fun to get to know. The hardest part was probably scheduling meeting and school functions together so nothing clashed in the school schedule.
