"I believe the classroom environment should foster thinkers who ask questions, and look for their own answers in an inquiry-based approach that integrates research skills and practical applications of materials. I believe the curriculum should be flexible and multidisciplinary, so that it reflects the integration that is inherent in real life circumstances. The goal in my teaching is to develop intrinsically motivated, critical thinking, problem solvers who can take the knowledge they have gained and apply it to new and unrehearsed situations."
