Business and Management and Criminal Justice
I believe that “Education is Power”. I’m IN because at CTU we provide our students the opportunity to gain this power by supporting them as they reach their educational goals.
My teaching philosophy is to share in the responsibility for my students’ success. While I can’t do the work for them, I certainly can work hard to create a positive learning environment.
