I believe in fostering the growth of knowledge in my students through the use of active learning. I was a student not long ago and remember vividly how important it is to keep students interested in course content while actively participating to ensure that information is remembered for long term use. I thoroughly enjoy teaching at the Freshman and Sophomore levels where curiosity is at it's strongest. Sparking students interest in the field of Nursing is important to me. I ensure that all of my students are treated fairly and with respect, in hopes to inspire students to treat all of their future patients the same way.
