Teaching Focus or Philosophy

Learning needs to introduce student to concepts they need for higher level thinking. I believe professors need to help students operationalize harder concepts so they become relevant. Students can become more immersed in learning if given some choice in projects as they continue to grow. Professors need to be student mentors, modeling communication, critical thinking, assessment, and analytical skills. Integrity is an integral part of a student-professor relationship.
