As a former professional singer/actress my teaching style is dramatic - I tell students if they can sleep through my classes I'll let them! I am a big fan of the flipped classroom. For the past six years in particular I have have focused on creating assignments that are Team-Based as well as assignments and exercises that allow students to take a proactive approach to their own learning.
