Educational Philosophy: I believe the learning process should be a collaborative effort, the teacher’s responsibility is to design and prepare class lectures and course information to stimulate the students’ curiosity. The responsibility of the student is to come to class fully prepared and to actively participate in the learning process. In addition, the classroom environment is an open discussion, where the student learns from both the teacher and the other students.
The learning process is a continuous process, where the student should keep learning and updating knowledge learned from the course. In addition, students need to take an active role in the process of their education in order to pursue and achieve their goals.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Any classroom conduct that disrupts the learning environment in the opinion of the instructor will not be tolerated.
Also remember that computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
