Teaching Philosophy

Learning should be fun and related to the student. So my goal as an instructor is to get my students involved in their learning. Involvement can be something as simple as realizing how a concept affects their life or actually using hands on examples of communication in their life. I also love when students participate and add their own ideas and questions to the class.
