MY TEACHING STYLE

I am constantly pursuing new ways to update and upgrade my teaching methods to continue to meet the ever changing needs of the diverse population of students that I work with. I am passionate about student engagement, mindfulness, and collaboration. I am a facilitator of meaningful student interaction and a fan of student driven, project based learning.
