My Teaching Philosophy
Dr. Jacqueline Stavros
Each student comes with a unique learning style and agenda: what are they are interested in learning, how do they best learn, and how can I support them in relation to course objectives? My classroom is a safe and caring place where students explore their ideas, ask questions, and bring their thinking into topics we are learning. We’ll make connections between topics and their experiences and how what we’re learning supports their goals and growth.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday night after work, I attended LTU as a night school student. I can look back and directly tie the things I learned to my career success. The faculty took Theory and Practice as more than a slogan. They gave me a great education and bolstered my confidence in myself as the instructors took the time to answer questions and help me along the way. I always felt I could talk to them about "work issues" and they gave me great advice."
