My Unique Approach to Education

I believe that each student brings different life experiences to the learning environment. My challenge is to create an atmosphere where each student contributes to the depth and perspective of the course, applies theories and principles learned, as well as develops an insatiable thirst for knowledge that ripples beyond their experience at Amberton.
