“I understand my role as faculty to function as an educator, facilitator, administrator, and mentor to students…”

“I have a love for teaching and have embraced my role as faculty on the graduate level. My personal teaching philosophy is rooted in the Betty Neuman System Model nursing theory, viewing students through a holistic lens while understanding the many lines of defense and variables that can impact their learning experience. I understand my role as faculty to function as an educator, facilitator, administrator, and mentor to students by implementing interventions to best enhance students’ learning experiences, as well as prevention measures to diminish the risk of negative influences that can impede the learning process.”
