Why I Teach

During my classes, I teach material that is easily understood, practical and applicable in today’s workplace. I want my students to be able to apply their new knowledge as soon as they begin their first job out of college.

I find joy in interacting with my students. They are inspired learners, and I gain a tremendous amount from being around them. Each semester, I teach many of the same courses, but the students enrolled in my classes change — and this creates both the challenge and reward of teaching at St. Edward’s.
