Why I Teach
As I was cleaning out the garage today, I found words I had written in an old research binder from years ago, "Love the unlovely. That's a true test of your ability to love. Teach those that are deemed unteachable. That's the true test of your ability to teach." I would have to say, in a New York Minute, that's my teaching philosophy. In the wee hours of the morning, while writing my graduate thesis paper, I scribbled those words in my Instructional Design notebook. I was tired and wondering why I was putting myself through this stress. I knew I wanted to be a part of changing education to provide ALL learners the opportunities to achieve their academic goals and realize their professional selves. Good words to my professional self.
