Why I Teach

As a teacher at St. Edward’s for four decades, I do my best to impart knowledge to my students in the most interesting ways. For example, I make use of the latest classroom technology and integrate social media into my courses. I think it’s important for my students to have fun as they learn new concepts and ideas.

Over the years, I have worked in a number of roles in my professional field. In my experience, teaching is by far the most rewarding. I feel like I’m not working when I’m in the classroom. I love every minute of it.
