What is your teaching philosophy for Lasell courses?
"My philosophy is to prepare students for management positions and leadership roles in the Hospitality and Event Management industry. To accomplish this, students need a strong foundation of hospitality courses, a good base in business/professional courses, and liberal arts courses to make them a well-rounded Lasell graduate. In addition to this academic foundation, students are reinforced in their learning process though the Connected Learning experience offered in our department's classes, practicums and internships."
