Dr. Brooks has attended Green River College for continuing education credits, Western Washington University for K-12 Certification, City University for Masters in Business and Public Administration, Columbia for Bachelor of Art in Business Administration and Southern University for Bachelor of Art in Secondary Education. He has always subscribed to the philosophy that everyone has the ability and capability to learn. It may require nontraditional teaching and risk taking to get the desired outcome. Additionally, his philosophy includes the belief that every child is a genus. They just have not been told and taught like they are geniuses. Furthermore, he believes that learning should be fun and something we enjoy doing, as well as what we want to do. Learning should not be something we dread and hate doing. Therefore, it becomes the teacher's job to create a leaning environment that makes classes so inspiring and mysterious that students do not want to miss any classes. Thus, attendance does not become an issue. He brings out the best in teachers and students. He has dedicated his life to helping underachieving-struggling teachers and students become achieving and successful teachers and students, they work to become the best that they can be. His firm belief is that when teachers do their jobs the way it should be done, the students will be academically successful. They will be able to perform successfully on any district, state, or national examination. Dr, Brooks' philosophy is, "Teach a student more than he/she need to know and he/she cannot fail". That is a winning philosophy that no one can argue against. Most teachers don't do this because it requires teaching beyond the assigned grade level curriculum. It requires preparation beyond the current grade level requirements that is not compensated by district.
