About Me

Teaching and learning is an interactive process and an inherent contract between teachers and students. Both teachers and students must take responsibility for their roles in that process. Teachers must challenge students to do their best academically, keep the students engaged, and hold students accountable when they fall short. Students, on the other hand, must actively engage in learning and inform the teacher when they are having difficulty in the learning process. Those that are active participants in the process tend to benefit more.

Teaching strategies should be adaptable. Teachers must be aware that not all students learn the same. Therefore, it is imperative to implement various teaching strategies that cater to multiple learning styles. Students should never be made to feel that they are not capable of learning but rather they must work closely with teachers to find solutions to assist them in their learning.

I absolutely love learning. I truly believe that a day without learning is a day without living. I hope to instill this in my students.

Research Interests

My research focuses on mentoring and parental involvement in the college-going process of African American students pursuing nursing education. Specifically it focuses on how these strategies facilitate the recruitment and retention of minority students in nursing education programs. In addition my research interest includes reducing health care disparities and inequalities by diversifying the nursing workforce and improving healthcare outcomes among this population.
