My philosophy of teaching is based on my appreciation and dedication to life-long learning. Every class that I teach is aware that I am a student myself. I understand the time commitment and dedication that is required of students. I want students to enjoy the process of learning. We too many times focus on outcomes and objectives instead of the journey toward understanding. Learning is a fun and rewarding process.
Some may call my way of teaching unconventional. I embrace that term so long as one understands the philosophy of my teaching. I feel that all students have something to contribute to class. I believe that learning occurs both inside and outside of the classroom.
While tests, quizzes and papers are good indicators of student learning, they are not the only indicators. Sharing a story and asking a question many times may tell me more about a student’s knowledge base than I could ever learn from a test. I am not afraid to tell students I do not know. We should not expect students to know all there is to know about a content area or idea. We should, however, encourage them to explore more deeply the concepts and ideas we wish for them to know.
Clarke is where I found out who I was and what I wanted to do with my life. I was a transfer student here and have continued to grow and learn as both a student and faculty member.
