EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

 

                                         

 


I believe that my primary role as an educator is to facilitate learning and motivate students to reach their educational goals by providing them an enriching learning environment.

Another goal is to create for my students an awareness of some of the global issues that affect health and the delivery of health care so students can participate as change agents to impact their community and find solutions to health and environmental problems.

CURRENT PROJECTS

        


The Effects of Oral Hygiene Education on Elementary School Children


I am researching the effects of oral hygiene education at a primary school in Cordoba, Mexico, where 98% of the children have Early Childhood Caries. Oral health education, varnish, sealants, and fluoride rinses are already making a difference in the La Cumbre community.

Reading a good book and spending time with family and friends are some of life's greatest pleasures. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, foreign films, and creating stain glass art. I also like to travel and learn about other cultures.
