Mrs. Roquett’s teaching philosophy is The ultimate objective is for scholars to become more effective communicators and thinkers.  My job is to teach them and show them how to achieve this objective.  I want scholars to understand literacy as an exploration of language instead of practicing grammar rules and memorizing the events and characters of the stories they read.  The real world demands that they be skilled in interpreting someone’s message and/or expression as well as being able to craft their own.  A scholar’s first task is to find meaning in what he/she reads and in writing or creating something meaningful when presented with a purpose.  scholars should come to understand that the more they read and the more vocabulary they acquire, the greater background they will have with which to shape and refine their message, albeit creative or nonfiction.  When scholars become better readers and better thinkers they will, in effect, better understand the world and their role in it.  Horace Mann said that “Language is not merely a necessary instrument of civilization, past or present, but it is an indispensable condition of our existence as rational beings” (Cremin, 1957, p.35).  I would argue that the word language can be replaced with the word literacy in describing its importance in becoming active and productive members of society.
