I believe that all students can learn. Rather than giving students answers, I strive to teach in a manner which gives students all the tools and support they need to be successful both inside and outside the classroom. I do not believe in letting students drown needlessly in their education, but to teach them to build their muscles (brains) so they can swim on their own. We call need a life vest sometimes before we can go it alone.
