- Please describe your teaching philosophy.
My teaching and mentoring philosophy in general consists of individualizing my instruction and advising to students’ individual career goals, needs, and circumstances, while at the same time aiming to inspire and teach students to become evidence-driven, critically thinking, and socially aware citizens and professionals. In the classroom, I aim to reach students from different backgrounds via a multitude of methods and make the topics lively, interesting, and relevant to their lives. My overall goal is to inspire, support, and facilitate students’ career goals in their chosen direction.
- What advice would you give to a student entering The Michigan School of Professional Psychology?
My suggestions include: (a) Plan and individualize your training experiences to fit your specific future educational and career goals; (b) Keep a balance between trying new professional experiences and specializing in one area; (c) Build and utilize a social and support network, including your peers, and (d) Keep perfectionism in check and be compassionate to yourself.
