I am also tutoring two new undergraduate classes in

These three concepts are very important to me as I begin my teaching career and are the three highlights in which I took out of EPE 100.

    Teaching Philosophy Statement In the movie The Matrix, Morphis says to Neo “I can only show you the door, I can’t open it for you.” The door that Morphis is talking about is this incredible vast knowledge that is unknown to Neo. What better person to show, to teach, to inform Neo than his teacher, Morphis. You see, I see myself as Morphis, the teacher, whenever I step into a classroom. As I look across the room, there isn’t just one “Neo”, but there are thirty or forty Neos. This is an extreme
