TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
I believe that teaching effectively means understanding a student at their level and facilitating development in a way that considers their interests and abilities. I believe the most successful courses are those that take an integrative approach. My primary goal in teaching is to encourage students to become critical, independent thinkers.
