Instructor Spotlight

“My interest in teaching comes from experiencing a variety of different methods of instruction over the last 20 years. I believe that not all students learn in the same way, so I use a variety of methods in my classes. Using my personal experiences, and combining them with theory and a real-world approach, class discussions develop and students offer to the success of the class.”
