Teaching Philosophy:

As an educator, Karen Casey views her role as one of a facilitator. She believes it is her responsibility to guide students in formulating ideas and understanding knowledge. Learning is a lifelong process, and her responsibility is to provide students with the necessary skills and habits to learn successfully. She does that by coming to class prepared, giving timely feedback on assignments and providing a forum for the open exchange of ideas. In return, Casey expects students to take responsibility for their own learning by attending all classes, arriving on time and coming to class prepared to discuss the assigned readings. In addition, she expects students to complete all their assignments on time and devote ample time outside of class to complete their assignments. If students are having any issues that may be interfering with their ability to be successful in class, she encourages them to come see her so they can discuss solutions. Education is partnership and Casey's goal is to provide an atmosphere of excitement, challenge and intellectual stimulation.
