My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: The unconditional love given and received by the faculty, staff, and students.
When I’m not teaching, I love to: Spend time at home with my family. Time is too fleeting to do otherwise.
In my classes, students can expect: My best. From my students, I learn to get better each time I lead a class.
My best advice to a new student in my program is: Students need to connect with their peers, staff, and faculty from their school.
Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Servant leaders. If we all were to spend our time serving one another, the world would be a much happier place.
The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: To me, teaching is a calling. You can’t teach others unless you are willing to serve them.
A quote that influences how I live is: “If you find a job that you love, you’ll never work again…” –Winston Churchill
