      EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
 
I believe that every student has the potential to make a difference 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.

I 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.

I 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.

I 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 today.  

Finally, 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.

   

 INTERESTS

 

 

I enjoy bike riding and long walks on the beach at my condo at Jensen Beach. I also play the piano (amateur).  I'm a big Miami Heat and Miami Hurricanes fan.
