"A good teacher brings out the best in students by supporting their accomplishments in learning and encouraging them to do their best. I get excited when students are excited by what they are learning and come up with new ways to impact advanced practice nursing -- the most gratifying feedback I could hear from a student is that my scholarship and teaching make a difference."
