My Educational Philosophy

Speech and Debate is a student-centered classroom and team. Experienced veteran students do most of the teaching. Because there are 16 different events at a typical tournament, there are often numerous lessons occurring in the classroom simultaneously. There is a strong emphasis on character building and leadership development on the team. We are very focused on the culture and are guided by our two core values: 1) See the big picture; the idea that there is so much more that we can receive.
