Teaching Philosophy
I value student success. My teaching is very hands on; I encourage questions, wonder, and discussion. I strive to have students apply what they learn in the classroom, and value a collaborative learning environment. A typical class would include some introduction statement to discuss, some lecture, a video, a class activity, and typically a review.
