I spent 3 years as a 'coyote' instructor at the United States Marine Corps' premier training center in Twentynine Palms, California. This was a teaching experience like no other. We would spend 28 days working side-by-side with units that were preparing to deploy overseas and help teach them essential fire support and tactical tasks. From there, I have been continuously involved in teaching at my church. I regularly teach adult and teen Bible studies. I am a lifelong student of the Bible and continuously devour everything I can about this wonderful story about God and what he has done for us.
I am a strongly visual learner, so I often support my own discussions with whiteboard drawings, images or space for students to create their own images. I like to take a holistic look at whatever I am teaching and help students first understand the big picture and then dive into the details. In my experience, it is important to continuously revisit the big picture so students don't get lost in the details.
