I have been a pediatric nurse for over 30 years and have worked in a variety of pediatric settings. I hold current ANCC board certification as a Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialist. I have taught in Pediatric Nursing at the UTHSCSA SoN since 2008.
My philosophy of teaching/learning is constantly evolving. I view the nursing student as my collaborator in their learning. Students bring with them life experiences through which they view their world and can be transformed through their nursing education. My role as the teacher, facilitator, coach, mentor, and advisor is to create an optimal learning environment for students that engages their passion, stimulates their reflection, and facilitates a desire for life-long learning that supports their nursing practice. I believe that the student who is self-directed in their learning and is a reflective practitioner possesses the essential skills to adapt and change throughout their nursing career.
