Why I Teach

I believe that my students and I learn best when we all enjoy the classroom atmosphere. I ask a lot of questions as I present the material. Also, I try to make the subject material pertinent to their lives. We have a lot of fun while we all learn new things.

I enjoy teaching far more than anything else I have ever done. It is rewarding to interact with students of all levels. The moments when I can see the “Oh, I get it now” flashes make teaching very exciting.
