My pedagogy is focused on "love and learning". Teaching is my superpower! With this power, I seek to encourage students to raise their aspirations for top-level future careers and help them recognize their own superpowers. Along with Business, I focus on the significance of ethics, leadership skills, and philanthropic service. A textbook is always a wonderful tool, but I believe experiential exercises and interactive discussions involving critical thinking are equally valuable. Overall, my classroom leadership is directed toward impacting and inspiring students on a level that motivates them to reach for excellence in every single task they pursue. Overall, I want my students to know the power of building relationships and gaining access to mentors, role models, and networks are key to propelling them toward top-level career goals. My student-centered teaching involves consistently motivating students to reach for career success and settle for nothing less!
