Teaching Philosophy
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 to convey this is to lead by example.  I have high expectations for my students but no more than I expect from myself.
