My Unique Approach to Education:

Dr. Test has always strived to create a learning environment where every student feels safe to grow and learn, while holding rigorous standards and expectations.  She believes that if students feel comfortable enough to take risks in the classroom, whether online or personally, they can carry the same confidence over to their professions outside of the college environment.
