My Educational Philosophy
No matter what a student's pursuit in life, they will be required to communicate effectively. My philosophy is that this communication should be effective and efficient. In my class, I will do my absolute best to help my students develop their mastery of the English language. We will achieve this through the use of different mediums, which include writing, verbal presentations, and multimedia. The most important thing for me is to make it fun!
