What is Your Philosophy of Education?

Many people never think about their personal philosophy of education. A philosophy of education is important for teachers because it provides a framework for making decisions in the classroom.

Philosophy of education can refer to either the academic field of applied philosophy or to one of any educational philosophies that promote a specific type or vision of education, and/or which examine the definition, goals and meaning of education. Philosophers of education are concerned with all aspects, meanings, purposes and characterizations of education and its process, content, context and structure.

What is your personal philosophy of education?

My personal philosophy of education is that all students have the ability to learn and succeed in school. However, some students may require more support than others in order to reach their full potential. Every student is different and learns in different ways. It is important for teachers to differentiate instruction in order to meet the needs of all students. In addition, it is important for teachers to create a positive and respectful classroom environment where all students feel safe and are able to take risks.

What are your goals for your students?

The goals I have for my students are that they become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive citizens. I want them to be able to think for themselves and to be able to find and use information. I also want them to be able to work well with others and to be contributing members of their communities.

What methods do you feel work best for teaching your students?

The philosophy one has for education likely comes from their own educational experiences, their values, and what they believe is most important for students to learn. When thinking about what methods work best in the classroom, it’s important to consider all students and try to find a balance of meeting the needs of different types of learners. A teacher’s methods should be flexible and adaptable based on the situation and the class they are teaching. Here are a few questions to consider when thinking about educational methods:
-What is your role as a teacher?
-How do you want your students to feel in your classroom?
-What do you think is most important for your students to learn?
-What methods will help all types of learners in your class?
-How can you make sure your teaching methods are effective?

What do you feel is the most important thing to instill in your students?

I think the most important thing that I can instill in my students is a love of learning. I want them to be excited about coming to school every day and excited about discovering new things. I think if I can instill that love of learning in them, they will be successful in whatever they choose to do in life.


In conclusion, your philosophy of education is the foundation upon which you will build your teaching career. It is important to carefully consider your beliefs and values in order to develop a philosophy that is personal and meaningful to you. Remember that your philosophy will evolve and change as you gain more experience in the field of education.
