My primary goal as a teacher, which is to facilitate student learning, requires that I must first learn from my students. Before I can assist in their discovery and comprehension of a new concept, I must first discover how they learn and what they already know. In practical terms, this requires that I facilitate learning by demonstrating a variety of connections between what a student already knows and what they are attempting to learn. I have found that this approach fosters learner independence by generating student self-confidence and self-efficacy; which, in turn, can promote a sense of ownership and pride about a student’s learning experience. Teaching students is a privilege. The task of teaching at the college level is an opportunity to engage students and demonstrate the value of being curious, working hard, and having integrity.
