Why I Teach
I believe that teaching should be interactive and fun. I incorporate games, demonstrations and activities in my lectures. I encourage participation and strive to make students feel comfortable sharing their ideas. I try to motivate them to challenge the course concepts and continue their learning outside of the classroom.
Teaching allows me to be a perpetual student. I love sharing information and learning from young people. It is rewarding to follow their growth and achievements during their time at St. Edward’s, which is unique to a small university environment.
