Your Instructor

Jim H. Hollis Jr.

I believe that W.B. Yeats captured the exhilaration of teaching when he wrote:

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

My goal as an instructor is to ignite in my learners a passion for academic excellence.

 

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

I see teaching as a reciprocal relationship between instructors and students. I believe that instructors have duties to their students and that students have duties to their instructors.

 I believe that it is my responsibility as an instructor to provide students with the following:

     • an environment conducive to learning

     • knowledge that will be impactful in achieving life goals

    • materials, opportunities and feedback that will assist in learning and

    • assistance with developing and maintaining motivation to be successful academically and with life application
