Professional Statement
It is my goal as an educator to promote open minds and open eyes. With a graduate degree in professional writing, I challenge my students to become critical thinkers before they write. My lessons are student-centered, interactive, and innovative. Students will always be the course’s focus, and their language progress, the priority.
