Her goal in teaching is to foster the acquisition of a base of concepts and learning skills to facilitate further learning, guide students in the evaluation of critical thinking. Applying her knowledge of psychology, to inspire growth in her students, a sense of curiosity, open‐mindedness, and a thirst for knowledge.

These competencies will equip students for a broad range of demands in future academic and occupational settings.
