Teaching Philosophy

My first responsibility as an educator is to educate students and prepare them for life. I have found that students learn best in an environment that both stimulates their creativity and allows them room to freely ask questions and make mistakes. What I love about allowing students this level of freedom is that they often become self-confident and self-motivating, and are more sure in their progress. As an instructor, my job is not to teach facts by rote, but instead to cultivate critical thinking and practices with students that will ultimately lead to further success in their careers and in life.
