What was your proudest teaching moment? My proudest teaching moments continue to be graduates of our Criminal Justice program who contact me and offer their gratitude to my time and teachings as they tell me about the start of their new career!

How do you inspire your students to learn? I bring the textbooks to life. My experiences in the field allows for discussions to take place in the classroom. I share my successes and short-comings and encourage them to learn as much as possible before their careers and never stop learning!
