I try to engage my students in active-learning exercises that will best prepare them for their future pharmacy careers. I try to make learning fun through role-play, occasionally dressing up as a character from a show, and incorporating clinical pearls before each of my lectures.
I taught eighth-grade science before applying to pharmacy school. During pharmacy school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in academia. I love being an educator, helping students to acquire knowledge with which they might attain their life goals.
This was truly the greatest professional honor that I could have ever hoped to receive. I wish to thank both the students and the faculty who nominated me for this award and their vote of confidence in my teaching abilities.
