Teaching Statement

I have developed a teaching philosophy over the years that is a direct result of my interaction with students and other faculty members. To some extent my teaching philosophy reflects and emulates many people who have mentored me as I progressed in my teaching career. My teaching philosophy is comprised of service - this service can be noticed in three areas of teaching: as a role model, as a mentor, and as a leader in the classroom.
