Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor
The passion I have for teaching emerges from the desire to empower and equip students with experiences, knowledge, and wisdom gained from over 25 years in the corporate world. Diverse examples of actual case studies brings teaching to life. It gives a factual, personal, and powerful perspective to concepts and methodologies. I continually challenge students and supplement the learning experience with elements of critical thinking that give them a seamless empowerment for future life application, choices, decision making, analysis, and a greater global interdependence.
Hiking; exploring antique shops; reading novels and historical books; spending time with family and granddaughter; listening to Classical, Gospel, and Celtic music; and watching my favorite movies: The Passion of Christ, The Hiding Place, The King and I, Gone with the Wind, Dances with Wolves, Romancing the Stone, and most documentaries featuring historical facts.
