|Career Accomplishments||Philosophy of Education and Guidance: American Education was founded on the belief that each student has God-given intrinsic worth and rights. Moreover, it is incumbent on educators to know themselves and their students as unique and special persons capable of positive growth. By and large, students proceed through life with various experience and changing developmental features. In essence, these students progress through stages via an interaction with their respective environments which results in either enhancing or suppressing sets of various strengths and weaknesses in different domains and ways. Certainly, the evolution of American Schools must include working "hand in hand" with a myriad of social services in order to meet all of the student's diverse needs. This includes intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects. Therefore, schools must be preventive, developmental, remedial, creative, positive, and successful. This may occur in a milieu by which educators continually seek to meet the various needs of all students via a planned, structured, sequential, and flexible instructional program consisting of individual, group, and classroom activities. However, this is best achieved with "boundless compassion" by educators who facilitate the educational process by drawing from their Source within in order to provide the proper guidance for students. Therefore, it is imperative for educators to recognize that individual students react as a whole being to stimuli since there exists a myriad of variables both known and unknown making each student unique with the potential to become whole to the greatest and fullest extent.|
