I am an educator at heart. 

One of my life long goals is to train the next generation of students, and for me, teaching is the most enjoyable aspect of that training. I am always looking for ideas to improve the learning environment for my students. Teaching is a lifelong learning process, and I treat it as such to best meet my students' needs. Below is the description of my teaching distinctions and experiences.
