Teaching Philosophy:

The most important aspect of teaching for me is the interaction between learners (students) and facilitators (teachers). The development of a relationship is important; fostering communication and getting to know my students provides the foundation for learning. I remember each and every student; if not by name, by some identifiable trait that resonated with me. I love nursing; teaching nursing is important to me because I want for future patients what I provided for my own patients: excellent nursing care. What better way to provide that than to be a part of educating the future of the profession?
