Teaching Philosophy
I feel as an instructor, it is my responsibility to determine exactly what I expect students to understand after completing my course, then to facilitate student learning so that every student reaches this level.
I believe that education is a two-way proposition. The student’s part of the proposition is to come to class prepared to learn and my part is to create an interactive environment that engages the student in the learning process. However, due to the circumstances of online learning, I understand that new obstacles and challenges may get in the way of your learning experience. To try and counteract this and have your experience be as smooth as possible, I will be understanding and flexible to make sure you feel supported during these times.
"Everything that you do makes a difference; decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
