I believe learning is an organic, creative experience, and people learn best when you meet them where they are at academically, and make information accessible and interesting.
Students, not being masters of information, often don't understand why they have to take subjects that maybe they're not interested in. It is my job as their teacher, to guide them to the information they need, and help them to understand the relevance of history in the greater context of society and a liberal arts education.
If I do my job right, I will create an environment that stimulates curiosity and creates a love for learning.
