Teaching Philosophy

Today’s college students are likely to change careers multiple times (the current estimate is seven).  Many will find themselves in industries that won’t yet exist on the day they graduate.  We need to give our students a versatile toolkit if they are going to be successful.  With this in mind, I place a great emphasis on writing and writing skills, thesis building, and the development of logical arguments.
