Teaching is one of my great passions, both in the classroom, via the web, and in my written work. I believe all students have the ability to succeed--it is just up to the teacher and that student, in collaboration, to find the best way to make the material relevant and meaningful. Rote memorization and cramming are rarely the best ways to learn, or the most enjoyable. My goal as an educator is to help a student be successful, no matter the subject.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my dogs, cats, and African Grey parrot, gardening, and working on my novel.
