My objective as an instructor is to build, not to tear down. I believe that it is important to teach students how to think, not what to think. This philosophy requires respectful consideration of all human achievement, and a constant subjection of ideas to the test of reason and appreciation of human nature. It demands discrimination between opinion, idea and fact. Also, it calls for a commitment to students extending beyond the classroom and illustrating that learning is a way of life. Education is an adventure, but it requires discipline, motivation and hard work from the students and the teacher. I am eager to apply my philosophy as your English instructor at Delaware County Community College.
