    Statement on Teaching

    My personal pedagogical philosophy centers on solid theory coupled with practical, “real world” applications. I do this through a combination of service learning, cooperative learning, and interactive discussions techniques. In each class I teach, I focus on developing my students’ creative and critical thinking skills. My meta-purpose is to creatively engage each student in a dynamic academic experience that then inspires them to be a life-long learner. In five years after leaving my class, I want them to view themselves as responsible citizens who can positively impact her/his world through their persuasive communication skills.
