Teaching provides a platform to introduce students to the world around them as they not only gain subject-specific knowledge, but the ability to make practical application.  Every opportunity to learn provides students with tools to influence.  My mantra is “we can only influence with what we know and are able to teach.”  This philosophy keeps my student making the connection to their subject matter.  I am encouraged through continuous research to shift the paradigm to analyze new ways of thinking that provoke critical thinking and positive results in high education.
