Teaching Philosophy:

James Kassar is a lifelong educator with a passion for learning. He believes that all students, including those with different learning abilities, can learn and be highly successful. An integral component of his teaching style is to incorporate the 3 R's in my daily presentations: 1) Relevance – Students must understand why they need to master the subject matter. An effective teacher clearly shows the relevance of the curriculum through real-world applications 2) Rigor – Students must be challenged and learning must reach the highest level for each student 3) Relationships – Students must be respected and the effective teacher must develop close professional mentoring and coaching experiences with students.
