Brief Statement of My Educational Philosophy

Today's education is overly centered on the "teaching person" rather than on the "learning person." Centering education on the learner modifies the teacher's role to one which is going to be demanded by the future: a learner, a facilitator of learning and a helper to develop a person's affective domains. More stress should be placed on such domains, which intrinsically relate education to an interdisciplinary approach. Human beings should learn tolerance, ethical behavior and aesthetic sensitivity, in addition to their own discipline. Education should be related to an intercultural and interdependent world, a world in which education teaches human beings to foster sharing attitudes, to compete with oneself and not with your fellow human being, and to develop pity and solidarity for the suffering of mankind. A world free from prejudices, where learning to care, learning to be, learning to grasp the whole and act on the parts, and learning to carry on learning should be one of society's main objectives.
