Full Professor and Department Chair of Education

Why I Teach

I believe that everyone can learn and improve themselves to reach their dream, whatever that may be. I teach to help people develop and integrate their skills in the cognitive, physical, social and emotional domains in order to become all that they can be. I believe that teaching is a service profession and in this sense, I teach to serve the seventh generation.
