Teaching Philosophy

In my class I emphasize observation, analysis, and technical mastery as essential preparation for more philosophical, theoretical, and experimental approaches within the classroom.

I believe that students learn from each other when immersed in an atmosphere where they have guidance from a teacher as well as interaction with each other. I encourage students to have open communication when in my class. The critiques I incorporate into my class are also an opportunity for students to learn from constructive criticism from their peers.
