Teaching Philosophy and why I enjoy teaching our NGS adult learners:
Work to get students to think critically, write at a doctorate level, conduct research, and think logically. I believe in engaging students as partners in developing their learning experience and providing the context and history for them to become life-long learners. Learning needs to be relevant and students need to understand how they could apply what they learn in meaningful ways. My interactions with my students go beyond the time spent in the classroom or online. I make myself available not only to those who are registered in my courses, but also to any student who contacts me.
