Teaching Philosophy: I feel it’s my responsibility to assist students on their journey to become empowered individuals, and to guide them towards a full understanding, both of their self-control and self-advocacy, in order to maximize their potential. I believe in creating a learning environment that is effective for every person every day. This requires recognition that each student is a uniquely dynamic learner and it is my teaching duty to uncover the pathway of success for each. In order to uncover this pathway, I  believe it is important to get to know my students as people, to build their trust and also let them know I, too, am a real person. The establishment of mutual trust in the teacher/student relationship is critical, allowing students to share their own academic processes and be more willing to accept feedback to strengthen areas, in which they experience difficulties.
