Teaching Philosophy

Part of my passion as an educator rests in the notion that I want students to take pride and believe in and own their individual education. In a classroom setting it is my purpose to challenge students to think critically by facilitating stimulating and thought-provoking discussions, exercises and assignments. As their instructor, I believe my role is to guide students along their quest to achieve the goals set forth each course. I strive to empower students to achieve personal ownership of all material through discussions and encouraging students to challenge each other to attain a deeper understanding of the material and themselves.
