My goals as a teacher:

  • My students take responsibility for their learning and know exactly why they are in this class.
  • They will become independent learners: choose their style of learning and their method of presenting.
  • Each student grows individually as well as the whole class grows as a group.
  • The report card mark is never a surprise, everyone knows how to get a mark of one's choice.
  • Learning Science or Math is not dry memorization; we relate everything we learn to our life experiences, future applications, having fun and passing the Regents Exam.
  • We use computers to learn the subject matter.
