It is my view that the goal of teaching is to present with clarity, the relevant knowledge, and skills necessary to build a student's expertise in the subject area. Effective teaching should encourage mastery, develop students' critical thinking skills, ignite and inspire interest, and encourage life-long learning.
"Karen's attitude made what I think would have been a dense course extremely enjoyable. She has a great passion for macroeconomics, is extremely experienced in the field, and clearly has interesting opinions on the state of macroeconomic policies today."
