## Teaching philosophy

I believe that mathematics is best taught by motivating curiosity. When we want to know more, we are willing to put in the work to learn. If I can encourage excitement and inquiry about a topic then teaching and learning are fun, and we all look forward to more of it. I’ve found that curiosity is supported by depth into the foundations of a topic, rather than a cursory explanation. Once students see how exciting and creative the process of mathematics is, they engage with it in a way that anchors real understanding.I’m a strong advocate for active learning methods and I use a lot of Inquiry-Based Learning in my classes.
