Teaching

I believe students thrive on being in an atmosphere where continued and lifelong learning are key.  On campus this is enhanced being surrounded by peers, educators, colleagues and students who share a passion for education.  This public institution represents the epitome of opportunity for all, where anyone can embark on a journey to fulfill their career and personal goals.  Education is the great leveler of all playing fields in our society. At UWB, students have the opportunity to be part of a small community working closely with fellow students and faculty as they accomplish their degree.  Experiential learning opportunities are built into the curriculum providing students the essential practical experience to compliment their education.
 
The best advice I can provide a student is to follow a path doing something they are good at and enjoy.  Ones education and career can be a marriage of what we love to do in life and where our personal strengths lie.
 
Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire.
-Wiliam Butler Yeats
