I. Philosophy of Teaching

I believe that every student that wants to learn is teachable. I utilize a variety of teaching methods to accommodate various learning styles including wikis, blogs, journals, case studies, simulations, lecture, problem-based learning and flipped classroom. I utilize animations, videos and Ipad activities. Student participation is critical for success and buy-in into the learning process. I am available to students and guide them through mentorship and lead by example. I am passionate about the success of every student.
