Why I Teach
I believe in cultivating a dynamic classroom environment where students actively engage in discussion, demonstrate their knowledge and competence, and show their ability to respect ideas and opinions of others. The St. Edward’s University emphasis on social justice and cultivating a global perspective is also central to my teaching.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing students grow and develop. I love mentoring students in the classroom and through one-on-one advising. Teaching allows me to give the best I have from my own education and experience to those that are the future of my profession.
