I have been educating students for thirty years, as a teacher, a school administrator, and an educational therapist. When I teach, I try to engage students in fresh and unusual ways. I don't just want them to "think outside the box;" I show them how to think as though there were no box at all. I love it most when students teach ME, when they lead me to see ideas in ways that I hadn't even considered.
Over the years, I have taught students with a multiplicity of learning styles and skill levels. As a result, I have learned to listen actively to my students and teach them according to the ways in which they learn best. Ultimately, my goal is for my students to surprise themselves by achieving goals that they had once thought were beyond their reach.
