Why I Teach
For many years, teaching has brought me the joy of communicating with students about the facts and theories related to psychology. I incorporate both a traditional and coaching approach with my students in order for them to best absorb the material and build their learning skills.
I include interactive activities within class lectures and assignments that help students more fully engage in the course. The more they learn and strengthen their knowledge about others in their global and local worlds, the more they will become connected in their life’s work.
