TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my fourth year of teaching. I graduated recently with my MeD. from Loyola Marymount University and I will continue to pursue higher education in the coming years. I finished my California Credential last year.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My mantra is: Provide students with the information, the skills to evaluate the information, and the confidence to produce something unique with that information, then provide the autonomy, challenge, and encouragement that will allow them to be successful. I prefer to watch my students construct knowledge, rather than construct it for them.
