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:
I try and implement respect, communication and hard work into my classroom.  I feel as though all of those aspects form a great foundation for a successful student.  I make sure my students know how dedicated I am to their education and how hard I work to go above and beyond their needs.

In this stage of my career, I express the importance of communication and feedback.  Any and all feedback is important for someone to be able to grow.

Clinically, I enjoy sharing my knowledge of Radiology with the students.  I feel right at home in a clinical setting, and I love the hands on experience that students get to be a part of daily.  It is very rewarding to witness the lightbulb going off when they get a concept.  I embrace those moments and look forward to experiencing so many more in the years to come.

Teaching Philosophy and Practice:
I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to share my knowledge and passion for the field of echocardiography with my students. My goal as the instructor is to help form a solid base knowledge of echocardiography concepts as well as hands-on experience before the students reach the clinical atmosphere.  I believe if the students enter clinical rotations with a solid knowledge and confidence in their basic skills, they will rapidly gain a deeper understanding of the field and excitement for their future as echocardiographers.
