Education

Sean Fitzgibbon

I graduated from UNC-Wilmington in 1998 certified to teach mathematics and language arts. I achieved my National Board Certification and Master's Degree in 2006.  I have recently finished working on my 2nd Master's degree in School Administration at UNCG in 2014 and this past year re-certified my National Boards.



Experience

I began my teaching career at an alternative school in Pender County near Wilmington, NC. I began teaching English and LA but moved to the math classroom only after two years in the classroom. After four years of teaching in Pender County, I moved to Randolph County and began teaching at Randleman Middle School. I have been here at RMS for the past 14 years and have taught 7th grade the entire time.



Bio

I am in my 18th year as a teacher, and I couldn't be happier! I am pleased that Randleman Middle School has chosen me to be one of its teachers and I look forward to spending the next few years making a difference in the lives of my students.

Classroom Philosophy - I feel that my approach to teaching in the classroom is a good mix of facilitating student learning combined with empowering students to want to learn for themselves. As a teacher, I try to give my students the skills that they will need in order to think and survive in the real world. Many of these skills involve problem solving.

In my classroom, I stress the importance that students think for themselves and attempt problems that they know to be difficult and challenging. I feel that the skills that student develop while problem solving will enable them to be creative and productive citizens. I will continue to hold a high expectation for my students when it comes to problem solving and thinking in general and I will push students to what I feel are their capabilities.
