My Teaching Philosophy

I like to provide access to higher education opportunities that enable students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their professional goals. To develop competence in global communication, critical thinking, collaboration and information utilization, together with a commitment to lifelong learning for enhancement of student’s opportunities in a very competitive global business world, and career success.

Why I am at NU

I have taught for Northwood University for the past 19 years. First as an adjunct faculty, and since August 2019 as Assistant Professor. I learned that Northwood has a very unique position among Universities. It is an ideal instrument for students who like to be successful professionals in a very competitive global arena, and become part of the free enterprise world. It is also a great place to work with excellent leadership and colleagues, but still promotes a family like environment.
