Kathleen Basilotto Assistant Professor, School of Language and the Arts Ocean County College
I believe that it is imperative for students to have confidence and self-esteem in order to be successful. I let them know that I am their biggest cheerleader; and at the same time they must accept responsibility and work hard to achieve their goals. At the end of the day, when students understand that their professor truly has their best interests at heart and wants them to succeed, they push themselves above and beyond to reach their goals.
My philosophy is quite simple – treat students with respect, make the learning process enjoyable, and include students in the learning process by engaging them in an active dialogue in assessing what strategies and techniques work best for their learning styles.
