KCC Faculty on Teaching

KCC Faculty on Teaching


How did you get into teaching?
I found myself giving good advice to people so I took that trait and used it in teaching and coaching soccer. I taught in high school and now college, and worked in the athletic department at New York University.   

What career did you imagine for yourself when you were in college?
When I attended college, I decided that my career would be physical education teaching and soccer coaching. I chose what I like to do in life rather than going after the money. I value getting a very good education and sharing this with students.

What do you love about teaching?
I enjoy figuring out how to motivate students to learn. Once I can motivate students and get them to do the work, I know they are learning.

What’s your favorite teaching experience?The most rewarding teaching experience is seeing students learn, graduate, pursue a career, and show their appreciation to teachers.

In what ways do you bring your professional experience into the classroom?
First, I provide guidance to students so that they make the right career decisions. Second, I structure my lectures so students are exposed to the main concepts and substance required to learn in the course.

What advice do you have for current students?
I would like to see students recognize their good qualities, talents, and gifts. I would like to see students go with their strengths and work on their weaknesses.
