Teaching Philosophy

I truly enjoy teaching.  I consider myself a post modernist in terms of pedagogical philosophy.  I attempt to create a mastery and caring-based motivational climate that encourages everyone to invest and treat others with respect.  I attempt to engage the students with references to current culture, small and large group work, and endless questions.  I try to merge both high expectations and fun in the classroom.  I will push my students but we will also laugh on a daily basis.  My students make my job enjoyable so I try to be available to them on a constant basis.
