Philosophy Statement:

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, he'll be able to feed himself for a lifetime. (He'll also drink a lot of beer and get sunburned.) Educators need to be more than fish givers (using effective teaching practices that help students learn today), they need also to be good fishing teachers. They need to teach students how to learn. They need to embed the teaching of learning strategies in content instruction so that the fishing pole is gradually transferred from teacher to student.
