Why I Teach

I utilize my 20 years of industry experience to tie the textbook to actual solutions that have changed the workplace. When students see the real-world applications of textbook examples, they gain a higher understanding of the subject. Since students process information differently, I’ve developed teaching tools that accommodate different learning styles, and help them learn and build their capacity as critical thinkers.
