Teaching Philosophy
I want to encourage a new generation of diverse students to assimilate new knowledge, skills, and attitudes and become professional nurses. I hold to strict standards while using my passion, creativity, and care to make class relevant to the student. I address student struggles individually and help the student search for ways to succeed. I want graduates to become caring advocates, life-long learners, and leaders wherever they are nurses.
