My teaching philosophy can be summed up in one phrase: Make it matter. Everybody learns best when the subject matter excites and matters to them. They must have hands-on, realistic activities that immerse them in the subject on a personal level, pushes them to be creative, and encourages them to reach higher and achieve more than they ever thought they could.
