“Teaching is only demonstrating that it is possible. Learning is making it possible for yourself.”
In my teaching position I am honored to facilitate learners’ growth and deeper understanding of a variety of topics related to diversity of family life, child’s socialization, and “soft skills” relevant to any helping profession. I emphasize human connection and empathy by building relationships with and among learners in my classes and beyond. I strive to organize learning experiences in dynamic, interactive, and meaningful ways by offering opportunities for self-reflection, real-world application, and peer-learning. As a member of SOHE team I am committed to supporting SOHE students in their aspiration to enhance lives of families and communities locally, nationally, and globally.
