What is your teaching style?

I promote a shared setting in which the students and I bring our own stories, experiences, and ideas together into the classroom, with the expected outcome of building an esprit de corps. Students need opportunities to work together, to learn from each other, and to respect each other’s differences. And learning becomes even more effective when I can help students truly to "own" their educational experiences.

Why do you do what you do?

It all started with my interest in biomechanics, sports medicine, and rehabilitation to make figure skaters better athletes – to improve their on-ice performance and prevent injuries.  My goal was to decrease a gap between the science and practice, and I believe that gap has become narrower.  It is my wish to share that with students, so they become more interested in research and learn how to apply it in clinical practice.    

How do you make learning engaging?

Engagement, explanation, and empathy are the foundation for my vocation as an instructor; to move toward a more educated society founded on understanding, respect, and trust. Engagement begins with creating a personal and conversational setting that welcomes students to the classroom setting. Explanation rests with the ability to break down material into a language that relates to where students “are” in their lives. Empathy reflects care and concern for a successful outcome of students' educational efforts, letting them know that I am here to help in any way that I can. 

What should students know about you?

I am a person who loves life and likes to share it with others.
