I am a student-centered faculty member. I believe I have become a more competent, knowledgeable, and resourceful teacher over the last few years. My passion for and commitment to teaching continues to be high; I am extremely enthusiastic about my discipline, and I have a deeper sense of commitment, loyalty, and respect for my students.
