Teaching Philosophy
Teaching is about so much more than subject matter. It is the opportunity to be part of a journey with a student as they learn to believe in their ability and their self-worth. This transformation is even more amazing when working with students in a developmental education setting where students often have not experienced a lot of success in the past.
