Teaching Focus or Philosophy

When I reflect back upon my experiences as a psychology major, my interest in the field was the product of a group of enthusiastic and engaging college professors. As a psychology instructor, I aspire to foster an enthusiasm for the subject that transcends the classroom. It is my hope that students take from my classes a curiosity that will lead them to further explore the field of psychology.
