Instructional Philosophy:

Your learning is very important to me.  I want you to succeed and will help you do so, but learning is a partnership.  Ask questions when you have them, seek clarifications when you need them, and take responsibility for understanding expectations, content and assignments throughout the semester.  (Modified from Beth Wrenn-Estes, Lecturer, School of Information, SJSU)
