“Teaching and learning are a lifelong process. I aim to motivate and instill a love of learning in all of my students. As future or current educators, most of my students will be teaching others at some point in their careers. Therefore, it is important to know that you can never “know it all”. Additionally, I try to practice what I preach by continually learning new teaching strategies and skills. I am a true believer in using technology to enhance education, and I share my passion for this innovation with my students. However, I still feel there is a strong need for traditional methods of teaching as well as the inclusion of empathy and compassion in the classroom. Teaching is part skill, but mostly it is heart and soul.”
