TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
I believe each student has great potential and the ability to learn. I believe students are obligated to study and apply themselves to learn. I believe students need to be able to demonstrate what they have learned through examination and class projects. I believe individuals should be given opportunities to demonstrate their acquired proficiency of course content throughout the entire course. I believe students should be able contact me at times and places outside of class. Additionally, I believe it is important for students to use and apply subject knowledge in practical ways and link their knowledge to other important life skills they have or are learning.
