I want to share with you that I am a committed lifelong learner. I am constantly challenging myself and those around me to reach new heights in our professional and personal lives. This includes seeking out the best training, meeting with experienced and wise mentors, collaborating with peers who are constantly challenging the status quo through innovative ideas and original lesson plans, and creating interpersonal relationships that are founded on authentic interactions. With this in mind, the cornerstone of my teaching philosophy is based on cultivating a dynamic, interactive, and supportive classroom environment. It is of the utmost importance to take what is learned in the classroom and be able to apply those lessons to success in one’s chosen career and adult life. I am constantly searching for new ways to disseminate information in a meaningful way that engages the whole person through a multitude of different learning mediums.
