I learn best by exploring and by constructing new ideas, but also by watching, reading, listening, writing, and rewriting until the combination of effort and hard work blend inconspicuously with creativity and exploration. This effort combined with an an attitude of service to my students and the community sets the stage for me to positively influence the next generation of teachers.
