Out of the Mill. This is how I view my life philosophy. One that pursues freedom and fulfillment by going against the pattern of the world, recognizing that though it’s far easier to do what everyone else is doing, value is created by leaving one’s comfort zone and going against the tide. It is how I view my teaching philosophy as well. Putting kids at the center and teachers on the outskirts, thus empowering students to see their own intrinsic value. It is based on the understanding that if kids do not believe in themselves, there is little influence that we can have in their lives. Through relationship building, creative thinking, and doggedly persistent efforts, as an Out of the Mill teacher I create a classroom environment in which kids can let down their guards and realize their true potential.
