What is important for your students to take away from your classes?
"In addition to an increased understanding of the subject matter, I hope that students take away an understanding of how the content material can benefit them in pursuing the career of their choosing. I would also hope that they take away the feeling that I cared enough about them to push them to do their very best at everything they do."
