My teaching philosophy with students is simple and includes: passion, interest, critical thinking and real-life engagement. My enthusiasm to advance my skills and knowledge base helps improve the passion within the students. When teaching students that challenge myself, it helps me become a better instructor and in turn helps them advance in the practice of pharmacy. Critical thinking is a part of the pharmacy profession and being able to guide students through the process of challenging ideas provides unique perspectives. Real-life engagement is the ultimate learning experience with a preceptor while allowing students to gain valuable insights of how to handle situations.
