My aim as an educator is to support individual growth and self-actualization through the content. I try to provide an educational environment that is built on autonomy, trust, and cooperation. I incorporate as much group and project based learning as possible, where I can act as a facilitator in the learning process.
While I aim for an understanding of the content, the bigger learning goals align with the 21st century learning standards. Students need to know how to think critically, problem solve, collaborate with others, and to express their ideas both verbally and in writing. Finally, I try to cultivate a sense of curiosity about the world and a love of learning.
