What is your teaching style?
My teaching style will integrate learning through sharing of my years of real-life, nursing practice and experiences. These past experiences will create a rich discussion in the classroom and purposeful, hands-on simulations. The goal is to get students to participate.
Why do you do what you do?
I teach because it is rewarding to share my years of clinical expertise with those students eager to enter the nursing profession. Teaching provides an opportunity to shape the next generation of nurses and ultimately influence the quality of care delivered by future nurses.
How do you make learning engaging?
To engage nursing students in the classroom, I make an interactive classroom with activities that are meaningful and relevant to nursing practice today. As Nelson Mandela wrote, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
