I believe that as teachers we have a unique opportunity to engage, excite and inspire students toward scholarly activities that will help them develop the skills and abilities they will need to obtain a rewarding career.  As undergraduate instructors, at the front line of every university graduate’s career, I think we have a responsibility to continually strive for excellence - in the classroom, in our scholarly endeavors, and in our interactions with the community at large. It is my desire to be a teacher who engages students in learning through discovery, who consistently encourages growth in critical thinking, and intentionally develops genuine rapport with my students. Below are a series of links to evidence of who I am as a teacher, what it is like to be a student who works with and learns with me, and how I continue to develop my teaching skill.
