Instructor, School of Education
"My philosophy of education includes the following words: engaged; student-centered; opportunities for all learners; guide by the side; and learning community. One of my goals is to have a classroom that is designed like a learning community. Working at the college level with students striving to become future teachers we all can learn from each others experiences we have had in the classroom setting. Class time involves the students being fully engaged in their learning."
