About Me
My philosophy of teaching and learning is articulated best by a quote from Creighton W. Abrams:
“The object of teaching is to enable the young man or young woman to get along without their teachers…To provide them an independence of mind and soul, without an arrogance of spirit or self-deceptive sophistication.”
I advocate teaching for the learner’s sake, for their benefit, not for the satisfaction or benefit of the teacher. A teacher should be a selfless leader, embodying the best tenets of servant leadership.

The classroom should be a busy place for the student. Teachers should spend a great deal of effort planning experiences and organizing resources outside of the classroom or class period. Inside the class, the students should be the ones doing most of the work. They should be collecting information, making critical decisions, investigating options, conducting experiments and producing examples of their learning.

Detailed planning and good resource management are the basis of effective instruction and the hallmarks of a successful teacher. Good teachers are not afraid of accountability, because they want to be responsible for the achievement of their students. Many of the problems in affective behaviors are absent in the classroom of an effective teacher.
