I have a strong set of teaching skills from fifteen years in a traditional classroom and ten years of online teaching. I have taught a diverse range of students from kindergarten up through college. I strongly believe that education is a lifelong pursuit and that people should continue to grow their education by any means. I personally keep my knowledge base current through seminars and webinars. I understand that every learner reaches a point where they need assistance in their education. I believe that it is important to fully understand the material of any given subject so that the student is able to reason critically and use it to find success in their future studies. With proper support and mentoring, I feel that all learners have the ability to be successful in their academic goals. My role is to recognize the needs of the learner and to be their support through the learning process. I feel that there are no silly questions, because asking questions is how we learn. I believe building a partnership based on dignity and respect will lead to a successful outcome for my students. I hold a bachelor's, a master's, and a Juris Doctor degree. Outside of academia, I enjoy bird watching, gardening, jogging, music, and reading.
