Masters in Secondary Education

My first opportunity in teaching was in the Granite School District back in 2003 at Matheson Jr. High in Magna, UT.   I joined the UCAS faculty in 2005, teaching Web Page Design and Personal Finance.

I believe that a great instructor needs to help students fulfill their potential by inspiring them to try harder to achieve their goals. I also believe that teaching is a mutual process. To me, concepts are not the only thing that I want my students to remember. I always encourage my students to gain skills and improve critical thinking when they are learning any subject. Although I love being friends with my students, I believe rules and boundaries create a better environment for learning. Finally, I believe that a great teacher should be able to inspire students to discover their potential. And I am always willing to help my students.
