  • A Teachable Moment

    Growing up, one of the most profound learning experiences I had was watching Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" series. It taught me to question, to wonder and marvel at the vastness of the universe. It gave me a thirst for knowledge which I followed into the sciences and, eventually, into teaching. I believe that instilling a sense of curiosity about the world is the first step in motivating students to learn, and is a primary goal I have as a teacher.

  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    As mentioned in my teachable moment, I think a good teacher works to instill a sense of curiosity about their subject. It starts with providing engaging curriculum. It also means giving students a chance to chart their own course to learning.
