I believe teaching

I believe teaching is my opportunity to empower and positively direct student's lives. My mission as a teacher is to develop a relationship based on learning with my student that is inside and outside the classroom. I strive to enhance student learning and challenge them to reach their fullest potential. If a students feels they personally benefited by their participation in a course I have taught. Then, I have accomplished an incredibly important task. My personal experience as a student with a learning disability greatly influences my philosophy on teaching and generating discussion about learning and empowerment. Promoting an understanding that social and political forces shape the construction and utilization of knowledge is central to my philosophy of teaching, because it helps students develop critical thinking skills, which enable's them to reach their fullest human potential.
