Students learn best by doing; therefore, my teaching is based on classroom activities with only essential lecture. When I plan a class, I try to think of what I can have the students do as well as what I am to say. I strongly support the internships and other field based learning that Thomas has to offer. Everything that I have learned really well in life, I have learned from listening and doing rather than from only listening.
Thomas College is a friendly place where the word community has real meaning. I have worked at the college over 22 years because I really enjoy my career and the people at Thomas.
