Teaching Philosophy

I wish to put down in writing certain of my postulates on teaching.  I may slowly enlarge the list.

Postulate:  There is no hope for a teacher to get students seriously engaged in the material if they themselves are not seriously engaged in the material.  Imagine an Trigonometry teacher who would be bored to discuss the mathematics of their course with colleagues outside of class.  I contend that such a teacher has no chance of seriously engaging the students in their classroom.
