The best teacher I ever had was my eighth grade History teacher. She didn't teach me a lot of history. I learned that for myself. She taught me how to learn. We, each of us, develop tools that we use to remember those things that matter to us. Learning is just that, finding the magic in the subject and applying the right tool to remember the matter.
My task, as a teacher, as a trainer, a mentor and a tutor, is to help each student discover the beauty and fun in every subject matter, and to find the connection that makes that subject matter. Then, together, we can find, or build, the tools that will help the student remember those things that matter.
I want to make learning new things about the world, the universe, ourselves as human beings, fun and special. I hope I can be that special teacher to you, or to your child.
