About Me

Being the first nurse in my family and the first to obtain a doctoral degree, my philosophy of teaching is to provide an avenue by which students are engaged and immersed in the experience of learning. People learn differently and information can be gained by various means. As a teacher it is my responsibility to help the student find his /her way of gaining that knowledge and understanding utilizing his or her God-given ability.
