    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
   

My teaching philosophy is that I encourage independent thought and expect more than the regurgitation of facts.    I encourage the student to think about and question the material provided.  The student should be able to formulate hypotheses and develop conclusions from the gleaned material.  Only by questioning and then formulating an answer will the student truly understand the topic.  Free thought is to be encouraged and no answer is wrong, as long as the student can substantiate their answer with good reasoning and sound scientific thinking.  The information presented in class is supplemented with contemporary information not covered in the text.
