Elizabeth Clark Teacher Language & Literature, (323) 340-3500 "If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original." Sir Ken Robinson Educational Philosophy: Adolescence is a time of stretching intellectual boundaries, finding one's voice, and developing independence. I want to awaken my students with literature; I want to give them a confident voice in writing and speaking; I want them to be bold enough to question everything, but to always back up their ideas with evidence and logic; I want them to believe in the power that one voice can make a difference _ even though they may not see the immediate fruits of their labor. In this way, I approach each day of my teaching in hopes that it will make all the difference to them, now or someday. What I value most about ERHS: The students.
