Teaching Philosophy:

  • My goal as an instructor is to become obsolete. I strive to give my students the foundational knowledge, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving abilities to make them independent decision makers who no longer need to rely on me. I encourage them, through experimentation and play, to meet any challenge with confidence and open-minded intellectual curiosity.
