Why I Teach
I constantly challenge my students so they sharpen their critical thinking skills as much as possible. I give them many opportunities and incentives to learn, but I also give them a lot of freedom. Ultimately, my students are responsible for their own learning. My role is to do everything I can to enable them to do this.
I take great pleasure in this approach to education. There is nothing quite like helping a student understand something he or she didn’t previously understand. It is a thrilling experience.
