Philosophy for Teaching:
I believe that students need different avenues of learning whether online, experiential learning or face to face to gain valuable skills to teach. I like to provide visual, auditory, hands on activities as learning opportunities for students. I like to use real life situations, story illustrations, and students’ experiences to connect the course material to practical and real-life settings that students may have or will encounter in their personal or professional lives. I believe that knowledge can be broaden and researched so I give online and oral exams.
