Teaching is my passion. Working toward successful transfer and witnessing its occurrence delights me. For over two decades I’ve had the privileged opportunity to impact the socio-academic development of many amazing students. I've thrived by provoking the desire to learn and uncover new knowledge among diverse student populations, never allowing them to forget the importance of humility and empathy along their academic paths. This has required much research and the creation of meaningful lessons that proactively engage students in the exciting learning process. My daughter, my students, and their insatiable determination to become compassionate lifelong learners continue to be the winds beneath my academic wings.
