What do you like about teaching at Lasell College?
"I enjoy working alongside the students as they explore new techniques and gain a further understanding of the physically active and the problems they may encounter. I have enjoyed working at Lasell because of the smaller class sizes which have allowed us to work more closely with the students and give them more individualized attention."
