Formal education is what has made our country and other industrialized nations great. Thus, as a future educator, I anticipate the opportunity to assist in the molding of future generations by imparting essential knowledge.

It is the development of all those capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment and fulfill his possibilities." Identifying with Dewey's pragmatist philosophy, I believe that children are ultimately shaped by their environmental experiences and must be taught how to use their knowledge as responsible, productive citizens....   [tags: Teaching Education Essays] 693 words
