Having spent over fifteen years working in the business of recreation and athletics, I firmly believe in providing students both a theoretical and experiential experience. I believe in creating a non-threatening environment that encourages the free flowing exchange of ideas and information. Learning is an interactive process guided by the student’s natural curiosity.
