Teaching Philosophy

 I believe that all my students can learn to articulate the English language to their direct benefit by varied means of communication (forms of writing and speaking).  It is my challenge and duty to help students at Mt. Tahoma become aware of these forms and to show them where they are best utilized.  I also believe that teaching writing involves understanding ideas from the wide world, and therefore incorporate multicultural writings in my curriculum.
