- It is my intent as a teacher to facilitate an optimal learning environment for students. I feel that students need an environment that is interactive in nature, promotes critical thinking skills, and encompasses a problem-solving mind set. I strive to provide all students with a structured environment in which the freedom to express their ideas and opinions is welcomed.
- I focus on student learning of the materials presented as well as the application of those materials to current issues. I feel that learning is incomplete if it cannot be related to life outside of the classroom. I have found that by setting high expectations students will rise to the occasion when in an atmosphere of encouragement and challenge.
- My teaching approach results in students learning to communicate effectively, embrace multiculturalism, and conduct themselves in a responsible manner in the classroom. I approach individual class lessons using different formats with the student's perception and comprehension in mind. I implement learning exercises through lecture, PowerPoint presentations, web-enhancement through Angel, assigned research, group or individual assignments, projects, and class discussions. I use video resources, business periodicals, and "in-the-news" topics for relating concepts to the students' lives.
- I adhere to the outcomes for each course instructed and measure student progress and learning retention through objective and essay exams, written assignments, case studies, projects, oral presentations, self-evaluation, and instructor observation.
