Research and Teaching

Learning is an active process, one that must engage students on several different levels. Part of my role as an instructor is to design a curriculum that challenges the students and promotes dialogue on the concepts and principles inherent to the science of human movement. I also try to encourage students to openly share their opinions, questions and concerns. I take these comments very seriously as I believe that students and teachers must work together to create an optimal learning environment. I like the fact that each student brings a unique perspective to the classroom and can raise interesting questions about a subject that has not yet been considered.
