Teaching Philosophy

The student is the focus of my efforts and, despite my attempts to enliven some of the material with humor or anecdotes,  take my teaching responsibility very seriously.  My objective is to provide course instruction that ensures academic quality, rigor and integrity.  I believe that students learn at different rates and in different ways and so, to the extent possible, attempt to explore which methodologies may be most effective for particular groups of students.
