Teaching Philosophy:

My philosophy of teaching has evolved over the years as a result of my educational experiences; however, there are consistent threads that bind my beliefs about teaching and learning regardless of context and time. First and foremost, constructivism provides the foundation for my beliefs about teaching and learning. I believe knowledge is generated from experiences and interactions that consider the intellectual, developmental, social, and emotional needs of students. Second, I value student-centered instruction and pedagogy. I believe my role is that of a facilitator working to provide students with the resources, space, guidance, and support necessary for learning. Finally, I place a lot of importance on reflection. Reflection not only encourages critical thinking, but challenges students and teachers alike to negotiate and co-construct new knowledge and skills.
