"You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you can teach him how to learn through curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives." - Clay P. Bedford
Hello parents and students! My name is Honesty Knight and I am beyond excited to be teaching Pre-K at Youngs Grove Elementary school this year! I graduated from the University of West Georgia with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2014. This is my third year teaching and I am so thankful to be able to continue my teaching journey at such an amazing school. I currently live in Rome with my boyfriend, Chris, and our Yorkie, Hazel. In my free time I enjoy catching up on my favorite shows, trying new recipes, and making crafts I find on Pinterest. I am so looking forward to an incredible year with such an amazing group of students and colleagues! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. Together we will make sure that your child has a GREAT first year of school and is ready for many more years to come!
My Teaching Philosophy: A teacher must first and foremost have a love of children. This love should lead to a desire to want to teach them and help them grow into successful adults. My personal teaching philosophy is centered around developing a new generation of thinking individuals. Showing students to be goal-oriented and instilling a love of learning in them that follows them wherever they go in life is invaluable. Creating students who are curious and who strive to be life-long learners will help them be successful in all of their future endeavors.
