Background: I was a Software Engineer for several years after college. I became a high school teacher about 12 years ago. I have also taught physics and astronomy classes at the college level. Although I loved programming, teaching is my true passion.
Teaching/Educational Philosophy: In order to be successful teacher, one must have mastery over the subject material and also have the skills to break it down to the students. Students learn best by applying the concepts to real-world applications. A teacher also should show that he/she cares about the students. If the students feel that the teacher cares, they will be more responsive.
Personal Notes: I feel so lucky to be teaching at Dougherty. The students are so motivated and highly responsive to challenging concepts. I think that it is very important for our students to become critical thinkers so that they can contribute to society.
