Teaching Philosophy: An old African saying is that there are two things that no one can take away from you – education and your culture. Both of these items tell people where you have come from but it is what you do with them that tells the world where you are going. Assisting students on their transformational journey to the next level of nursing is truly a privilege. I look forward to helping nurses transform and learn something new daily from my students. Come join us at UT Tyler and see how high you can soar!
