Teaching Philosophy

There are no stupid questions except those not asked. I attempt to learn something new every day. When we learn, we grow and are better for new experiences or knowledge. When we make mistakes, it is an opportunity to learn and do better the next time.

I expect students to be ready to learn and constructively participate in the course.
