Teaching Focus or Philosophy

My goals as an educator in any setting are to meet individual learning needs, inspire students to engage in intellectual curiosity and to value and utilize their own unique lived experiences. I believe the greatest happiness in life comes from being useful. I am passionately committed to teaching in the counseling psychology discipline because of the immediate application of course content to the profession and challenges of the world we live in.
