Applying personal experiences to the classroom“I use a student-centered teaching approach in the classroom, which simply means that students are encouraged to be part of the discussion,” she said. “I do a lot of hands-on activities and discussions that hopefully help students to grasp the material and apply it.”
Combining two passions“Being a professor is the best job in the world – because you get to learn a lot about something you love, research about something you love, and then you get to go out and teach people.”
