  • Why I Love Teaching at Molloy College

    I find great comfort and solace in my Catholic faith and I have been attending Catholic schools since first grade.  Molloy College feels like home to me. The school promotes values that I am able to stand behind honestly. I supervise and mentor my students with these in mind.

  • Educational Philosophy

    Education is the lifelong process of learning. An exemplary education develops the entire individual, academically, clinically, socially, emotionally, and physically. It is the responsibility of the educator to create a learning environment where this can occur. Classroom management skills must lay the groundwork for a classroom setting that is free from all biases; cultural, gender, socioeconomic, religious, and ethnic. Students should feel free to express themselves without fear of criticism or embarrassment. Discipline policies must be clear, concise, and enacted vigilantly so that favoritism is never an issue. The ideal educator is unambiguous, nurturing, possesses a sense of humor, and an abundance of patience. The ideal classroom setting should be one where team spirit and fellowship reign.

    Finally, I believe that a philosophy of education should be dynamic, constantly changing over time with reflection, maturing along with the educator. It is my mission and vocation to be the best possible educator I can be.

  • Additional Information

    Science majors will excel in our program because of the difficultly of the subject matter which include; chemistry, biology, physics, and anatomy and philology. Science majors have strong math skills that will provide a definite edge to the Nuclear Medicine Technology student who must calculate dosage and understand complicated instrumentation derivates.

    Nuclear Medicine melds different scientific fields to provide both therapeutic and diagnostic services to the community and will provide a career that both stimulates the sensibilities of a science major while creating an excellent healthcare provider.
