He states as follows: "I believe the teacher's role is to inspire students to seek knowledge rather than to simply provide it.I strive to provide students with opportunities to explore and question, I attempt to challenge and raise more questions than answers.Most importantly, however, I feel it is vital to ensure that the classroom is a community that is supportive, respectful and non-threatening, so that growth, both personal and intellectual, can occur.I see City College as having amazing potential for providing greater opportunities for residents of San Francisco, either through learning a new language or skill, advancing a career, or personal development."

Rick Kappra
The author of the best-selling adult education program, Out and About: An Interactive Course in Beginning English, Rick Kappra renews and inspires teachers via his repertoire of activities which he daringly refers to as "teacherless"â€"maximum student practice with minimum instructor involvement.
Rick has been teaching English to speakers of other languages since 1983, where he started as a volunteer in a community-based organization in Philadelphia serving refugees and immigrants. He presently teaches adult ESOL at City College of San Francisco in California. In addition to teaching in Philadelphia and San Francisco, he has taught and done teacher training in Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Korea. Rick's interactive, entertaining workshops demonstrate his teaching philosophy: students need to be given opportunities to use the target language in class while teacher talk time is kept to a minimum. His quest to find ways of creating a student-centered, communicative classroom led him to collaborating with co-author Amy Hemmert on "Out and Aboutâ€"An Interactive Course In Beginning English."
