Why I Teach? How I teach?

  • I was the first in my family to graduate from college. I quickly had to learn how to navigate through the educational system without support from my family. 
  • I make it a point to encourage all of my students and I serve as a resource to help them during their academic journey. 
  • I enjoy watching students succeed and hope that I can influence them to become lifelong learners. That's why I teach...and maybe because I get a really long summer vacation. 
  • My teaching style varies between demonstrator and facilitator. I tend to have a more student-centered approach and students who are active learners appreciate this classroom environment. 
  • A typical week in my class will consist of a mixture of lectures, group discussions, student to student collaborations, activities and experiences. 
  • I'll find a way to link learning—what's in the textbook to the real world. Every once in a while you'll find that an uncommon classroom activity, such as building paper airplanes, has a direct application to what we are studying. And if you don't see the connection, at least you take home a souvenir.
