Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one that requires the combined efforts of the instructor as a facilitator of the material and the discipline of the student to learn the material. The instructor will present material in every feasible form to ensure students are able to gain understanding of the theoretical and practical applications of all objectives. The student must exert their best effort to gain this understanding and communicate any problems with the instructor.
