Why do I teach? I enjoy teaching, and hope that my teaching makes a difference in the lives of my students (my experience tells me it has made a difference to a least a few). I am also obsessed with learning, and am a true life-long learner.
How do I teach? I strive to develop a favorable learning environment and use a mix of methods (advanced organizers, case discussion, games, hands-on activities) with the hope of engaging every student's preferred learning style.
What do I teach? I try to cover breadth but also drill-down to get some depth in knowledge and skills. I also try to model core knowledge-skills-attitudes, and the values of excellence and professionalism. In the end, for me, teaching and learning are fun enjoyable endeavors of opening, growing, understanding, and sharpening. I echo T.S. Eliot: "We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." (Little Gidding)
