My teaching credo is much in its infancy. I am still in the process of experimenting with different pedagogical strategies. Here are some questions that I tend to ask when I think about teaching or plan lectures:
Do I expect my students to enjoy mathematics like they would enjoy art?
Are my students comfortable with sharing their perspectives and feedback with me?
How do I encourage my students to work together and learn to communicating math?
How do I help my students get comfortable feeling stuck on problems?
Does this strategy help increase the attention span of my students?
Do I expect to learn anything new from my students? Am I open to it?
I’m always open to discuss teaching philosophies. Feel free to reach out to me.
