Teaching Philosophy

No single approach to teaching works for every class. A class of English majors and minors does not require the same approach as does a class of mixed majors and minors.  Flexibility, respect for all levels of student preparation, and the ability to motivate the student to give her absolute best effort to the class are, for me,  the key to successful teaching
