What is important for your students to take away from your classes?
"One of the most important things I wish students to take from my classes is an awareness that knowledge is a form of power that provides opportunities but also requires high responsibility. When students become empowered with knowledge their opportunities for personal and professional success and happiness are increased dramatically; this also means that their responsibilities to themselves, to others, and to society also increase. To those whom much is given much will be expected. Our students are highly intelligent and with that intelligence goes a high responsibility to others."
What is your teaching philosophy for Lasell courses?
A knowledge and acceptance of one’s self and others and the development of expert knowledge in one’s professional career that will provide for personal happiness and societal well-being.
