Teaching is my passion. I enjoy the challenge of being able to respectfully guide the learner by providing meaningful context to whatever is being taught. I seek high expectations but work to provide appropriate and realistic goals for the students to achieve. I also try to provide relevant and useful feedback to each student throughout the semester. I want to be an influencing force in the students’ achievement of course and program outcomes.
