Teaching physics presents unique challenges. I think that one important element in teaching any class is a positive attitude with energy and creativity to engage students in the effort of creative a pleasant environment. I have always tried to present real-world and hands-on practice to solidify the fact that what is being learned is essential in the intellectual maturity. I like to engage groups discussion to allow students to share their experience and teamwork is always important in a society where we always trying to help someone. I show and encourage my students to write concise and accurate description of their work. This part of the course training is to prepare my students for graduate schools and for their future careers goals achievements. I like to walk in the class especially when I give assignments to my students to see how much they understand of the instructions given. Of further great importance are homework problems, quizzes and exams, which allow me to gauge both how well a student can individually explore problems and how effective my lessons are at teaching the necessary methods and techniques. These formal assessments allow me to improve as a teacher from year to year.
The most gratifying part of teaching is perceiving that I am contributing to generate a more scientifically literate society, where my students have the abilities required to make educated decisions, assess opinions and proposals based on facts and logic, measure the importance and significance of statistics presented in popular science articles and the press, and approach their lives with an inquisitive nature.
