I believe that teaching provides an opportunity to affect learning over a lifetime. For me, teaching offers a chance to introduce students to a learning experience that expands views and changes perspectives to affect their environments. I feel that my teaching philosophy is in a developmental stage. I desire for it to mature as I gain more teaching experience. I currently approach teaching through the lens of my experiences as an adult learner. Ideally, I want student participation in courses to reflect a transformative experience that connects theory with practice. I believe learning at any level should be experiential, depending on the nature of the course. My goal is to reflect on the teaching models that inspired me as an adult learner and to use them as a basis to explore and expand my teaching approach.
