Teaching Philosophy

Marshunda was lucky enough to have attended the Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences (CSAS) in Tennessee. It was there that the Paideia philosophy and the teachers' belief in this philosophy showed Marshunda that there is more to learning than just sitting and listening. The teachers at CSAS were excited to teach and were equally excited when the students engaged them in a discussion. Marshunda's early exposure to this teaching method has helped shape her teaching method today.
