What I love most about teaching is sharing exciting and broad range of topics with students with many different interests. I also find it exciting to learn from the student's perspective on these topics. I believe teaching can often be a two-way collaborative learning effort. I also believe that it is important to have knowledge of many fields and topics. No topic exists in isolation and we can all benefit from learning how other topics can inform and improve what we are learning. I have made much effort during my undergraduate and graduate education, teaching experience, and research to learn as much as possible from any field that may help my perspective on learning, teaching, and research. I have developed and taught undergraduate courses in Experimental Psychology, Statistics for Psychology, Research Methods in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Scientific Topics in Psychology and Social Psychology. In addition I have taught Masters level courses in Research Methods in Psychology. I have also taught high school Algebra, College Algebra, Honors Geometry, and Music. I look forward to sharing my experience in these experiences with your learning experience and educational path.
