Excerpt from:

In my humble opinion, the near-exclusive focus of traditional

education on textbook-based learning allows a substantial number of students with

considerable intellectual potential to fall through the proverbial cracks of the modern

educational system. In many cases, students fail to reach their academic potential by

virtue of their greater relative ability to learn through different modes of instruction and

elements of practical experience.

Ultimately, I view my most important function as an educator to be the

encouragement of my students to discover their optimal learning mechanism, especially

to the extent aspects of it lie outside the traditional focus of academic instruction. If I am

fortunate enough to fill a faculty position at Waubonsee Community College, I hope to

stimulate my students to understand how they learn as a method of increasing their

retention of what they learn.
