Teaching Philosophy



Because I believe in design and the power of visual communication, I’ve also created a slideshow version of my Teaching Philosophy.  Please scroll through it below:


The following books have helped inform and shape my teaching philosophy.  I highly recommend them for all teachers:

  • Brain Rules by John Medina
  • Design For How People Learn by Julie Dirksen
  • Made To Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip and Dan Heath
  • Mindset by Carol Dweck
  • The Naked Presenter: Delivering Powerful Presentations With or Without Slides by Garr Reynolds
  • Presentation Zen and Presentation Zen Design by Garr Reynolds
  • Resonate: Present Visual Stories That Transform Audiences by Nancy Duarte
  • Slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations by Nancy Duarte
