Teaching Interests

Learning does not occur in a vacuum; it occurs within the context of a relationship. Just as relationships with teachers are an essential part of the classroom experience for all children, so too do I believe that the relationships I create with my students at Pacific are an essential part of their growth and development as professionals. Furthermore, I see each relationship as extending in time beyond the student-professor relationship here at Pacific to a lifelong professional relationship that is mutually beneficial and rewarding.
