The focus of the training is the focus of my teaching methodology and style for my entire 15 year long career...PROJECTS and APPLICATION.
is to treat people as if they are what they are supposed to be and they will become what they are capable of being. With 160 students at any one time I frequently learn my students' learning styles before I fully remember their names. Right or wrong, with transient lifestyles and cultural accommodations it is of the utmost importance to learn how each and every student learns in order to maximize learning time.
