Kirsten Heintz’s Teaching Philosophy: In any class I teach, I hope that students will and are able to take in the course material and apply it to their own lives and process concepts in ways that meaningful to them. I believe students are best served when they are actively involved in the learning process. Therefore, I feel active learning strategies, lectures, activities, test and assignments together can foster both analytical and critical thinking and can foster learning.
