My philosophy of teaching is based upon a model of caring that includes organization, competence, and experiences within the system of learning. I want to provide a partnership between the learner and the teacher in each class that brings challenges, knowledge, and enjoyment to my teaching environment. I feel that one of my strengths as a teacher is that I bring into the classroom a very practical, experiential background in nursing, leadership, and management that allows me to teach technical aspects in understandable terms. I am also able to bring many practical examples and stories from my past experiences to demonstrate and give practical applications of the field of study we are discussing.

A teacher needs to be a good listener and be intuitive in order to know what the students comprehend of the material she/he is presenting and when the students may not be grasping or having difficulty understanding information. Validation of this understanding can be accomplished by the use of testing, skill demonstration, learning projects, student evaluation, and dialoguing with the students. 

I look forward to being one of the Freshmen advisors to guide, support, and encourage through the four years of our nursing curriculum these university students.
