I believe a good teacher does two main things.  First, he inspires the student to learn the content, then he inspires the student  to learn concepts with that new content.  Students pay good money for their time in class and a good teacher gives them their money’s worth.  I believe that technology is the future, so I require my students to use computers and web sites in their learning experiences.  A good teacher is more than just that – a good teacher is part of the students support system for the rest of his or her life and should be available to guide and mentor the student long after he or she has left the classroom.  I also believe that science students should be prepared to spend at least two hours studying outside the class time for each hour spent in class.
