My philosophy regarding teaching is simple- it is a dual learning experience. I think that as much as the students are learning from me that I am also learning from them. Teaching and learning is a process that never ends and learning from the students allows me to grow both professionally and personally. I also believe in providing energy to the classroom by incorporating scholarly journals and articles that are relevant to the discussion as this helps to make the point hit home. Creating a great learning environment is one of the keys to success for the students and I am very committed to doing that daily.
