As an educator, I am passionate about inspiring and empowering students to think critically and to pursue lifelong learning in order to achieve full potential. My role as an educator is not to pass information but to teach how to think, to create, to find, and to practice knowledge.
My research on the first generation of college students' persistence and timely college graduation led me to challenge notions of success, holistic education, metacognition-how we learn, access and equity, and examine pedagogical approaches, beliefs systems, and pathways to achieving not only a college education but our highest potential.
I believe ALL students have the capability to learn but not in the same way. We need an education system that's inclusive, equitable, accessible, and highly respectable. We need new MINDSETS.
An education system that prepares students with the skills they need to integrate successfully in the real world.
An education system that supports and respects the teaching profession and all students' abilities and learning levels.
