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.
