It has become clear to me over the past several years that I am a lifelong learner and educator. I not only instruct adults, but I am an adult learner myself. Already, I find myself implementing aspects of my lessons into my classroom. Gone are the days that I just stand in front of the room and lecture; gone are the days of assigning mountains of homework in an attempt to drill the material into the brain; gone are the days of final exams and stressful studying! Okay, well maybe not...or at least not yet. I haven't managed to shake the traditional roles of teacher and student, but I continue my quest in finding a better way to engage adults and truly help them learn.
