Personal Information


Teaching Philosophy / Personal Statement:
My number one goal is student success. I care about the students. I want them to do well - in the classroom, on the clinic floor, on boards, and ultimately on the job as a professional-and in life in general. I encourage students to work hard in their studies and to take some responsibility in reaching their goals. My teaching philosophy is centered on the “Show, Tell and Do” approach – power point lectures, slides, demonstrations, guest speakers, student presentations, field trips, educational conferences, lab activities, and providing patient care in clinic.
