Teaching Philosophy
I believe that my role as a teacher is to establish that positive learning environment for my students which starts with my enthusiasm for the subject. I have chosen to pursue math as my career and if I am not excited about this material, I cannot realistically expect them to be either. Of course enthusiasm alone is not enough. In the classroom, I utilize active learning through regular inclass problem sets which are designed to require creative problem solving rather than reciting memorized information.
