Personal Statement

I truly enjoy teaching and feel that there is always another way of explaining or demonstrating something in a way that a student will understand. Also, I encourage my students to be creative, and to apply concepts and ideas in various ways, as well as there own ways. Lessons should be fun. I try to make mine fun.
