The philosophy of learning that I identify with most closely is the theory of
constructivism. The learning process should be interdisciplinary in approach
with assessment part of the process. Curriculum should to be based on prior
knowledge with an emphasis on hands-on problem solving.
Clarke’s impact on
Carol: My experiences at Clarke have provided me with opportunities to
interact with educators all over the tri-state area where we place our students
as well as the faculty and staff here on campus.
Carol’s impact on
students: My primary objective each semester is to assist the student
teachers in helping them to have successful experiences so that they are ready
to begin teaching on their own at the time of graduation.
