I feel the key to education at the college level is twofold: First, students need to obtain a solid understanding of the fundamentals from textbooks. Second, and of equal importance, students need to learn how to perform the work in a hands-on environment. Using my 20+ years of experience, my teaching philosophy is to equip students with both the fundamentals and real life experiences which will enable them to transition and ultimately succeed in the workforce.
