Why I Teach

I train my students to become active learners by developing hypotheses, designing experiments to test those hypotheses, analyzing the findings and then reporting on the significance of those findings. Along with my passion for the subject, a careful and thoughtful approach to the material makes this learning process both exciting and practical for students to utilize.

I teach because I want the next generation of leaders to be excellent critical thinkers.
