Ms. Watkins' teaching philosophy is based on a holistic approach to teaching and learning. "This philosophy encompasses a child-centered approach which promotes the child's individuality, creative exploration and active involvement in his/her education," she said. I teach to the whole child, thereby addressing the intellectual, emotional, physical and social factors that influence children's learning and development and respecting the complexity of children's lives."
