Why I Teach

In my classroom, my students and I learn together. We examine and share ideas and search for solutions to problems. This exciting environment is also greatly enhanced by the professional and life experiences of my adult students.

I thoroughly enjoy seeing individuals learn, reach their potential and achieve their academic and career goals. Witnessing this transformation is extremely rewarding. I’m enriched by my students’ growth, and by my own growth, as they question, share and challenge concepts during our mutual learning process.
