description of :
This academic year, I have taught organic chemistry courses at Elmira College as
well as Introductory Chemistry, and Seminar. In spring, I developed and conducted a
short course in chemistry emphasizing Green Chemistry.
My interest in teaching is based on providing myself with a set of values to live by. It is the satisfaction of knowing that a tangible difference is being made. It is the desire to be genuinely productive, the need to be of service to society. All these are fulfilled by the role a teacher plays in a student?s life.
The following tenets, I believe, are essential for efficient instruction:
? Provide a clear written indication of the goals, assessment methods, and expectations from the course of study and model the instruction to fulfill those goals.
? Provide a list of the primary and auxiliary resources and references as well as any alternative assessments methods such as research projects.
? Employ the various modes; traditional chalkboard, power point and peer group instructional formats to enhance the instruction.
? Maintain a professional attitude and a relaxed atmosphere during the course of instruction.
? Create a learning environment, spark interest within the student and nurture the inquisitive with positive comments.
? Be accessible for one to one instruction and flexible in arranging such meetings.
