Teaching Philosophy

My philosophy of teaching is a lot like my philosophy of nursing. The actual job carries a lot of responsibility, but there are many rewards. I believe everyone can contribute something. Everyone has something to learn and everyone has something to teach! Learning should be fun! Teaching allows you to touch influence the future through your students! What could be better than that?
