Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is focused on encouraging students to raise their aspirations for their future careers and helping them recognize the significance of ethics, courage, and community service. The textbook is always a wonderful tool, but I believe experiential exercises and interactive discussions involving critical thinking are equally valuable. Overall, my classroom leadership is directed toward impacting and inspiring students on a level that motivates them to reach for excellence in every task they pursue and to aim for the top as they travel the journey toward career success.
