So its August and I must say I am too excited/nervous/anxious for whats ahead of me. FINALLY, I get the shot at being a teacher. lol. I came across this school named Turning Sun and I immediately fell in love with their philosophy and close atmosphere.
PhilosophyInspired by the educators and students of Reggio Emilia, the work of Howard Gardner, David Sobel and Richard Louv, we immerse children in their natural world and local community. Turning Sun allows children time, freedom and space to test their own theories about the world.
Earth CenteredWe are an earth centered school. Turning Sun is located in the woods, with hiking trails, a creek and gardens. We believe that children must connect with nature to form a true love and respect for the planet.
Our mission is to create a nurturing, empowering, parent-integrated, and safe small class/small school environment conducive to optimal growth and self-realization. Through tutorial, differentiation, and student-centered approaches to learning, we will develop the leader, artist, and scholar in all students while instilling in each a love of learning and a sense of pride.
