Good luck to my fellow SMACers on their first day of teaching! What is your educational philosophy from the outset?

So, I found this when I was looking through other edubloggers' sites this summer, and was interested in its implications for the use of technology in the classroom. Also, in our Foundations class we have been discussing educational philosophy, and am very curious to know about my colleagues' educational philosophies and how they might be stated in short form like this one. However, I think that this statement would be better balanced if it included a positive component (e.g. "IF ... then I will be a fantastic teacher!"), as well. So I am challenging my classmates to respond with a little summary of their feelings on teaching in their first week, with regards to technology and/or to their educational philosophy in general. :)
