Teaching Philosophy

I believe a teacher should have a passion for teaching so that excellence can be achieved in the chosen field. I also believe, very strongly, that a teacher should have the ability and willingness to use a variety of teaching approaches in a given subject area so that a number of diverse learning styles can be accommodated and should be obligated to serve as a role model to give the student direction and develop the 'whole person.'
