I believe you must truly love what you teach to be a great teacher. I have a deep passion for photography, and I want to infect my students with that passion and enthusiam, no matter what aspect of photography they are interested in.
Every learner is different, and I use as many teaching methods in my courses as I can. Using lecture, demonstrations, visuals, concrete examples, practice, and hands on learning, I cover as many learning styles as possible to ensure a quality learning experience for all my students.
I see my role as a resource, a facilitator, and a mentor. My skills, knowledge, and experiences are a well for students to draw from to further their development.
