Dental, health and management professor. Flower arranging for mental decompression after work.


I have given lessons at the college level and adult learning. I have a Masters degree. I use real-life experience to teach, visual and hands on activities to help the learning experience more enjoyable. Everyone has different ways of learning and I use those techniques to teach each person on an individual level.


I have been teaching for 3 years at the college level. I have taught over 400 students some of the classes were over 30 students in one class. Results of successful students have been up to 80%. They have all found jobs, the grades were above 78% up to 98%. The majority of my students have passed certification for the jobs they acquired through teaching techniques such as examples and visual.
