Teaching Philosophy: I enjoy teaching, and hope that my teaching makes a difference in the lives of my students. I am obsessed with learning, and am a true life-long learner. I strive to develop a favorable learning environment and use a mix of methods to engage every student's learning style. I try to cover breadth, but also drill-down to get some depth, and model core knowledge-skills-attitudes, and the values of excellence and professionalism. For me, teaching and learning are fun enjoyable endeavors of opening, growing, understanding, and sharpening.
