Instructor
Education is a crucial part of helping others develop lifelong, critical thinking and learning skills. Students, no matter their age, are best served by becoming self-directed learners with their natural curiosities engaged. In my roles as an instructor, I have placed myself in the role as an encouraging lynchpin for positive learning and exploration. I have found the most success using the simple method of engaging those I am teaching with material they are eager to learn, showing them how it can be directly applicable and useful. Following the philosophy of actively demonstrating, then having the student demonstrate understanding. It is deeply satisfying, and I have been applying these principles for the last 18 years.
