As a lifelong learner, I have been fortunate to study and teach in many places in the United States, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. I have never had a bad experience as a teacher nor as a student. "Always Look for the Lesson" has been my motto, which has turned some pretty harrowing experiences into the funniest times of my life.
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe in meeting you, the student, wherever you are when you come to campus. It does not matter if you come to Cypress College from an area high school, a private school, a home school, or a school in another country. At Cypress, we understand the importance of recognizing and respecting all students.
My classes make use of the Internet and many mobile technologies to enhance learning. Students work in groups and individually to build web pages demonstrating what they have learned in class. The final project is usually a multimedia presentation that shows not only what students learned, but showcases creativity.
