Teaching Philosophy and Practice:
I look forward to starting a new class every year.  New students present an opportunity for new adventure and discovery in the healthcare journey.

My teaching philosophy is very simple:  I believe in an open classroom setting where students are encouraged and expected to participate.  My ultimate goal is to produce the most qualified Radiographers that any healthcare facility could hire.

My expectations of students are to be mindful and respectful of others, to have integrity, demonstrate professionalism and to enjoy and contribute to an atmosphere of experiential learning and creativity.  Successful students demonstrate initiative and problem solving skills, embrace coping mechanisms that provide balance in one’s daily life and express compassion for the patient.  The best way I know how to convey this is to lead by example.  I have high expectations for my students but no more than I expect from myself.

Teaching Philosophy and Practice:
My classroom standards for respect and hard work ethic are quite high. My students know to treat themselves, peers, and patients with the utmost respect. They also know that nothing in this field comes easy; they must show a hard work ethic day in and day out in order to be successful. I love being able to see the students take the knowledge I give them in the classroom and use it out in the clinical field.

The clinical aspect in this program is a key point and I am fortunate to hold the role of Clinical Coordinator, where I am able to work hands-on with each student in real life scenarios, coaching and mentoring them to be the best technologist they can be. It is very rewarding watching your students grasp classroom concepts, put them to use in the clinical setting, and grow into great technologists throughout the program.
