Why I Teach

My goal is to inspire students to become accomplished learners — decision makers of their own learning needs, strengths and growth areas. During my courses, I try to help my students learn from the inside out — not just what they need to know but how they come to know it.

I teach because it inspires me to learn and grow. My students motivate me to stay current in my knowledge and skills. Finally, I teach because through teaching I can help change society and I make a positive impact on the world.
