As an educator, I believe it is important to maximize student potential through the use of multiple learning techniques, technologies and support systems. Through a strategic mix of textbook readings, lectures, lab activities and community based interactions students can become competent skilled professionals for various clinical practice settings. I believe to be a good educator you must be willing to be a continuous learner.
