Teaching Philosophy:

  • My teaching style has evolved over the years — and will probably continue to evolve as I find more effective ways to communicate with my students. My goal in teaching is to impart as much information to my students as I can in the context of my classes. I try to draw on real life experiences — not only mine but others — that will help them understand where and how they fit into this profession and in their future. I try to make the classes relaxed, as it has always been my contention that students learn best in an environment that is non-threatening.
