Overview

About

I have enjoyed teaching Nutrition and Well Being (Nutritiion 100; in lecture format and on line), Cinical Nutrition (Nutrition 468), Advanced Clinical Nutrition (Nutrition 476), Applied Food Theory (NUFS 250), Health Education, and Nutrition and Chronic Disease (NUTR 452).  I have also enjoyed working as a Clinical Dietitian for the past 20 years.


Teaching

I love everything about teaching! I enjoy organizing the material, lecturing, interacting with students, grading papers, all of it. All students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow intellectually, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and take risks.

I believe that there are three essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The instructor’s role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access activities that apply what they have learned. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. 

So it may seem counter‐intuitive that I have become a strong advocate of using technology to enhance education. However, instead of creating a distance, I’ve discovered that technology can be used to bring student and teacher closer together. And re‐instill a love of learning in both of us!
