Philosophy

I have found teaching is one of the most satisfying of all professions. It has to be to justify the low pay and 70 hour weeks. Nonetheless, it is the only profession I have found to never get boring. Not only is the knowledge base always increasing, but no class of students is ever the same. consequently, both curriculum and the techniques used to teach it must be constantly re-evaluated and refined.

My philosophy is not a complicated one and can be summed up in the following quote from Lee Iacoca, former CEO of Chrysler Corp:

Why Teach?

" In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have."
