How has your background and education experience shaped you as a teacher?Teaching to me is as natural as breathing. Creating diverse learning environments is something I strive for with each group of students. Using everyday examples creates the foundation of learning. Moving from the known to unknown is the fun part. My background of 40 years as a medical-surgical nurse equips me to have plenty of fresh examples for learning opportunities to share with students.
What about clinical instructing energizes you?
Both the clinical setting and teaching environment energize me in that I get to participate in the students' learning. To see students start putting the pieces together is such an exciting time.
