My Teaching Philosophy
I believe that my role in the classroom is to facilitate learning and develop critical thinking skills. I design my lessons not only to prepare you for assessments, but also to reflect what I would like you to remember ten years and beyond. I believe that everyone can be successful. I believe that we are a community of learners and as such should demonstrate respect to everyone in the classroom. Believing that we are a community of learners also means that I believe that I learn as much from you as you from me.
