Educational philosophy: I believe that students learn through active participation in class discussions and activities. Learning takes place when students struggle with a concept and then overcome the struggle. It is through this process that they own the learning. Students will come to my class with a variety of experiences and knowledge. It is my goal to challenge students at every level to improve their learning.
