Our students are the future of our profession.

Our students are the future of our profession. As their teacher, part of my role is to create engaging course content; demonstrate its relevance; and provide an atmosphere conducive to learning for students with a variety of learning styles. But more importantly, I must demonstrate the same passion for learning that I want students to feel, and to serve as a role model for them on their educational journey.
