in the world; it is the job of the instructor to guide them.
I graduated from Miami Dade College many years ago, and I believe
that the professors I had helped me appreciate the importance of a
college education and become a better person. I hope to be a
"partner" in my students' learning. I strive to motivate
students to develop their critical thinking skills through
discussion and reflection papers. Assignments and projects are
designed to expose students to experiential learning
opportunities--that's because I believe knowledge should be
practical as well as theoretical.
believe in "active learning;" a variety of tools will be
used to will be used to encourage discussion and interaction on the
important issues that my courses present.
want to create an environment in which the students feel free to
express themselves and discuss topics as they wish, while being
mutually respectful and tolerant of diverse beliefs and opinions.
hope to enable students to obtain a context to understand the
workings of the criminal justice system, its processes and
applications. Furthermore, students will be expected to
critically evaluate criminal justice issues we face
I hope to provide my students with a successful learning experience
in which students leave MDC with a better understanding of the field
and more prepared to enter the workforce. Hopefully, they'll
leave their mark on their chosen profession.
