What Matters for Learning

Teaching may be a role assumed by a trained professional modeled on well chosen standards, with measured results and reflective evaluations to improve the proponent’s skill and expertise.  Yet, if the teacher’s students do not learn, then it is a failed exercise.  I bring into my teaching fun and excitement and I try not only to teach the subject at hand, but also I strive to regard my students and listen and learn about my students’ abilities, needs, interests and curiosities.  My intent is to get them involved and engaged and motivated in their journey of learning.
