My teaching philosophy results from my past interactions with students in several diverse settings, see photos below!
I am committed life long learning and active engagement in professional development. I have formal training in effective visual and auditory presentation formatting. I hold a Certificate in College Teaching (CCT) from Duke University which includes extensive evaluation and feedback on effective in-classroom teaching techniques. To build stay up to date with current research I maintain a presence on LinkedIn, Research Gate, ScoopIt and Twitter. Additionally, I had the chance to lead and communicate with many diverse personality types when I helped initiate and later chaired the Mycological Society of America Student Section. I plan to continue these efforts to develop myself professionally and become an engaging instructor and mentor for my future students.
