What is your philosophy on teaching for Lasell courses?
"It is of equal importance for me not only to determine what content to teach, but also the most effective means of instruction. My strategies are derived from current media trends and feedback from my students, which I encourage regularly. The teaching methods I employ are augmented with variety and the underlying theme of how the material can be practically applied to each student's career path. Students in my courses understand that they're not only in class to earn a decent grade; they're in it to contribute to the world in meaningful ways."
