Mr Blair's Teaching Philosophy

Adolescence is a challenging journey for each of us. We live in a very competitive and complex world which demands core skills in technology. Although I don't believe everyone should follow a career path into computer science, I firmly believe everyone can benefit from understanding core concepts taught in this field. I have a passion for technology and enjoy taking students along a journey to discover how amazing technology can be.

I am fortunate to have been raised by amazing parents and mentored by incredible colleagues in my professional capacity over the years. I consider it a privilege to mentor and support the students who I serve as they discover who they are and who they can become.

Every student deserves to be treated fairly. Fair does NOT mean equal. We do not all see the world through the same lens. Nor do we have the same physical, emotional, and psychological capabilities. I try hard to treat my students fairly, but also push them to reach their potential. Every student deserves to be given as many opportunities for success as we can afford them.

Teaching can be challenging, but also very rewarding. We need educators who are sensitive to the needs of those with disabilities but help all students reach their potential. I do everything I can to make my classroom a safe and welcoming environment for all students.
