Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is based on active learning. My main objective is to help students obtain skills that will allow them to take control of their own learning. I believe if you are actively involved in your own learning you are more apt to hold on to the skills and knowledge acquired. My courses are very interactive and hands on. Students who put more thought and effort into their projects will undoubtedly get more out of them. It is my vision that everyone will be able to take something from this course and use it in his or her classrooms.

I am very excited to introduce everyone to the vast amount of technology resources that we are so lucky to have available to us. It is my goal to make everyone comfortable with the technology and to help you when you need it.
