Teaching Philosophy
Psychology, education and development are my passions and I'm thrilled to be able to do all three at the same time! I truly believe in the power of education, and try to incorporate everything I know about all subjects into my classroom sessions. I continually try new classroom exercises, computer assignments, videos and activities to enhance learning. My goal is to set students up for success and contribute to the development of new skills. I truly hope my classes are challenging, informative and interactive!
