Teaching Focus/Philosophy

A good teacher must first captivate their audience if they wish to convey the material effectively. When teaching I hold my students to the same standards I apply to myself in that if you cannot explain a topic simply, you do not understand it well enough. The true test of a good teacher is not the number of questions I ask my students that they can answer, but how many questions I can inspire them to ask me that demonstrates they applied critical thinking skills to the subject material.
