I majored in Business in College while working as a home-care nurse. I've done a little bit of everything, from factory work to the boardroom, from the military to the classroom. I use my experiences with life and family to try to keep my students interested.
I am very laid back and open with my students. They know that if they give me respect, they will earn it in return. I like to see them talk and share and encourage open dialogue. I also give them an opportunity to share with only me in their journals. No one sees these but myself and the student, so they can be completely honest and open in what they say. It gives them an outlet and a way to let me know if they need to talk about an issue further.
