What I am working on
I am in the process of trying to get my dissertation published.
Every year I try to make myself a better educator by conversation with my colleagues, additional reading and workshops, and self-reflection.
A good teacher is one who is involved in the multi-dimensional aspects of the student through the active participation in the other varied components of College life. A good teacher is one who recognizes that the student is more than just a student seeking to become a professional; he or she is a unique individual (at whatever age) seeking fulfillment as a human being.
