Statement:  As I strive to help my students be successful in college, I am careful to utilize multiple methods of instruction. The strategies I believe that hold the most power to enhance student achievement revolve around collaborative learning, giving students’ choice in regard to topics to be studied, and providing them with the opportunity to incorporate their personal experiences in their assignments. Life happens. For that reason rather than hold fast to “rules,” I work with my students to help them navigate the challenges associated with pursuing their education while dealing with life’s trials. It is my sincere belief that community college students are some of the most industrious, committed, and compassionate people on the face of the planet.
