Making Connections: Brian Smith’s Teaching Philosophy
I believe that the purpose of education is to provide students with the skills they’ll need to a find personal fulfillment and participate in society at large.
In order to achieve this students need multi-literacy skills and the type of deep structure critical thinking that will allow them to transfer knowledge and problem solving processes across mediums and circumstances.
“ As a teacher with thirty-nine years of experience and as a Project Director for Communities in Schools for eight years, I can truthfully say that in all that time I have met few instructors more talented than Brian Smith…In addition to being an excellent instructor, I was impressed by Mr. Smith’s expertise with technology. He gave media presentations in a variety of formats that held the students’ interest.
