Enthusiastic, engaging and relevant describe my teaching philosophy. I believe students learn best when they are involved in the learning process with hands on activities and problem solving. The more students process information, the more they will be able to apply, analyze, produce, and evaluate the information. Using a variety of teaching strategies keeps students engaged in the classroom. Students become engaged in the classroom when they see the relevance of their learning to their lives. CTE classes create this hands on relevant learning which can be applied to life, school and the workplace environment.
Teaching is something I truly enjoy. The students and staff a Fred T. Foard High School are a joy to work with. I encourage all students to take a CTE class and be opened to a skill that will be with them for life.
