Teaching Philosophy

I emphasize critical thinking. I use exams as a learning opportunity for students. I emphasize that the study of nutrition is constantly changing  because our understanding of the interacting disciplines and human physiology is constantly changing. A sound biological sciences base and an appreciation for interdisciplinary study will go a long way to laying the foundation for a career in Nutritional sciences.
