Teaching Philosophy


I believe in the old adage that "no one rises to the low expectations." Thus, I believe in setting high standards, but also in helping students reach them. I also believe that teaching and learning occur both inside and outside the classroom. This approach to teaching and learning has led me to develop a number of specific practices that have increased my effectiveness as an instructor. These practices relate to: setting expectations, assessing student work, and providing contexts for learning.
