Teaching Philosophy
Before taking my formal education classes at the university I was part of the mentoring program and some instructional design reviews at the American Red Cross. Through my college courses I also was taught different concepts for instruction. I have learned that they are many methods that can be utilized by a good instructor. Students will learn when given the opportunity and it is the job of the instructor to help each student learn by whatever method is best for the individual.
I am interested in research in the areas of health, safety and aquatics.
I am active in aquatics here at the university helping students in classes and outside of class to maintain their certification in Water Safety Instructor, Lifeguarding, CPR for the Professional Rescuer/AED. I also teach classes for students and the community in American Heart Association CPR for the Health Care Provider. I teach courses at Woodlands Swim Club and help with programs at Alpine Hills Swim Club.
I am from Mobile and grew up enjoying all things outdoors, especially anything to do with the water. I became interested in the American Red Cross in high school and started teaching as a volunteer when I was seventeen years old. I am still a volunteer and have benefited from their programs. I also love volleyball and track and was on varsity teams in college. I enjoy watching and participating in sports especially swimming and tennis.
