Teaching Philosophy
One of my goals as a teacher is to draw upon my 40 years of professional experience as a teacher, coach and athletic administrator. I have had some unique and distinctive experiences teaching students from kindergarten to the University level. This experience has taught me how different people learn and develop. Just as it was as a coach and administrator, my goal is to assist the individual in their development, which strengthens the team, organization, or institution as a whole.
