Why I Teach

I appreciate the rewards of both challenging my students to seek knowledge and being challenged by them to be the most effective teacher I can be. I want my classroom environment to not only inspire students to learn, but also to think. And if we can have fun in the process, so much the better!

Inspiration occurs in an atmosphere of collaboration where everyone engages in all discussions. I encourage students to express their opinions, to truly listen to each other, and to bring new ideas into the classroom from their experiences.
