A professor of mine once told me to make each school day novel, unique and different. I try to incorporate those ideas into each lesson I teach. I use music in every subject, and love bringing in my guitar to sing along and reinforce the material. I believe rapport, motivation, and positive reinforcement can help students achieve far beyond expectations. Using these beliefs, and setting very high-expecations, I try to make to make my class an active, engaging learning environment where students develop a lifelong love for learning.
