Philosophy of education, Good teaching
All teachers possess a philosophy of education. The set of ideas under which every teacher operates is the springboard for their choices in the classroom, if only because the complex nature of education requires that we operate from a belief system about what we do and why we do it. Philosophy determines what materials we choose, what methods we use to teach them, and what kinds of rules we have for classroom management. A teacher's philosophy of education impacts his or her students in a thousand ways as it is tested and refined in the classroom. One cannot separate theory from practice, for it shapes and is shaped by the everyday realities of teaching, and is the rationale for all that we do.
