My teaching philosophy revolves around enabling the learner to best reach their academic goals.  I believe in faculty presence as a tool to best facilitate self-learning of the student, and acknowledge the diverse backgrounds of our students and learning styles.  I am a humanistic faculty member, which is reflected in my aspiration for each student to succeed through rigorous study and application of self.
