Philosophy

I believe the number one service I can provide my students is to teach them to learn and to solve problems. Their futures will depend on their ability to learn and relearn in a rapidly changing business environment.

Teachers cannot learn the material for their students. What they can do is set up an environment (a learning community) that provides students with many opportunities to share their knowledge, ideas, and problem solving strategies. Students have many learning styles and no one method of teaching works for every student. I try to integrate traditional and technological resources to create a learning environment that fosters learning for all types of learners.
