TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
  

My teaching philosophy is grounded within my background in clinical practice and the concept of caring. I believe that the relationships we form are expressed through concern for the welfare of others. I believe that caring is expressed within a relationship of some form. I acknowledge that caring occurs in degrees of expression within a relationship and that caring can occur in a moment or throughout a lifetime. In my view, caring is a personal feeling rooted in concern for others and expressed in the relationship between persons or through the connections between humans and their environment i.e. concern for peace, concern for animals, environmental concern, etc. Caring can be expressed in language through words or expression, or through actions such as personal nursing care; caring can also be expressed through music, visual or written art forms, through gifts or through forms of acknowledgement paid to other humans. I believe that caring requires relevance or connection to that which is cared for at a deep personal level and that caring is influenced by ethical values and beliefs.
