Why I teach
I enjoy cultivating a “community” in or out of the traditional classroom wherein a wide range of diverse personality and learning styles are maintained, supported and challenged, providing learners with a wide range of learning opportunities. All education is about several critical things, necessary for the continuance of the human species: growth, change, perspective-taking, understanding and greater awareness. For me, teaching is one venue and one domain in which all of these occur, often simultaneously.
Too many and too varied to mention. I’ve a long list, which I add to each and every year.
Same as above: a constantly evolving list.
Best part of being at SVC
The intimacy of the teaching/learning experience. Small classes, a minimum of bureaucracy, an opportunity to truly impact on students, and the possibility of developing and designing new curricula and learning opportunities, both formal and informal.
