Hey whats goin on. My name’s Ephraim. I’m a , New Jerseyan, second generation Pakistani, recent college graduate. I am currently attending Montclair State University going for my Masters (MAT) and teaching certification in biology and teaching students with disabilities. I like to think a lot, probably too much. I’m very passionate about education, and want to be part of an educational reform movement in America (as opposed to the deform movement currently making the rounds).I was gonna be a doctor but recently I’ve had a big change in perspective. I give all the credit to one amazing teacher and one amazing philosophy of education class that has opened my eyes to the problems of the American educational system. Now I have big dreams to be part of an educational movement in this country that gets us away from the current model dominated by traditional lecture-style pedagogy.
This blog is titled “Reflective Thinking” because when I write this blog I write with this mindset and therefore I try to be as “intellectually responsible” as possible. Ultimately I write how in the future I wanna teach… with open-mindedness, wholeheartedness, and responsibility. I love comments. I love debate. So please contribute.
