My Educational Philosophy
It has always been my desire to do more than just teach mathematical concepts. I want to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I strive to help students tackle difficult, complex problems. It is my goal to provide for you the opportunity to think critically and be a problem solver. Each student must be active in the learning process. Determine to learn. Learning is a lifelong process full of new discoveries as well as recalling past lessons. Regardless of your background and knowledge that you bring to the class, I hope to instill the excitement of learning each day. It is my honor to walk along with you in your quest to grow and learn. Let’s begin today!
