Brief Statement of Teaching Philosophy

Social Work students interact with content on personal and professional levels. Therefore, it is essential to provide a classroom environment that allows for doubt, questioning, reflection, and investigation to foster personal/professional development.

Teaching Focus

My research and experience have prepared me to teach courses in integrated healthcare, clinical management, social work clinical practice, practice evaluation, research methods, and statistical analysis.
