As a new instructor and self-described lifelong learner, I believe that students have an inherent capacity to learn. Learning may be active, continuous and certainly obtains growth. My role as a teacher is to facilitate learning. In the teacher role I must demonstrate openness, honesty, trustworthiness, caring, skills and applied knowledge in a variety of settings and situations.
