What is your teaching style?
Creatively, guiding students in achieving their potential in a given topic, using movement, humor, introspection, problem solving and current research.
Why do you do what you do?
I like teaching—taking a subject, breaking it down into components, teaching the components and observing the students have the “A-HA” moment and guiding students to achieve their potential. I want to encourage students to become lifelong learners. I want students to be curious and have a constant sense of amazement of the human body and it's functions. I want students to know that the best tools are their eyes and hands.
I believe in the power of Physical Therapy as a tool to guide individuals on their journey to health. I want to share this with students, so that when I am in my dotage, there will be good PTs to help me!
How do you make learning engaging?
I hope to incorporate creative activity to stimulate student problem solving. I want to encourage student ownership of their learning process and put their phones down.
