Educational Philosophy: The interactive quality in a class gives credence to every voice. With communication (sharing ideas, opinions, questions, suggestions) and collaboration (working together and combining resources) the instructor and the students can develop mutual respect and preserve an academic essence in every class. While becoming educated is a serious endeavor, this spirit will make the experience fun as well as fruitful.
