My Advice to Walden Students 

My advice to Walden students is read (and reread) the instructions! The devil is in the detail...

My Role as a Teacher

Why I enjoy teaching at Walden:

I enjoy teaching because I enjoy learning. As an instructor, I learn a great deal about my subject focus not only from my own research and development but from my students.

What students can expect from me as a teacher

As an instructor, students can expect that I will be responsive and friendly! I believe in a collaborative learning environment, one in which mutual respect and communication are the foundations.
