Education in the form of knowledge does not by its very nature beget student success. Engaging students with the lifelong learning skills and knowledge they will need in order to succeed after graduation is the cornerstone of a quality education. I see my role as an educator as challenging, engaging, supporting, and mentoring students to help them achieve independence and life success through critical thinking, ethical reflection, and the pursuit of lifelong learning.
